State may expand in-car Breathalyzer demands
Some local officials support idea targeting DUI offenders
DeKALB – More drivers may need to blow into a Breathalyzer to start their cars if Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White’s proposal becomes law.
White is pushing to expand the state’s Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device program to include more drunken driving offenders and to require jail time for offenders caught driving without the device.
The program requires drivers to take a Breathalyzer test before the vehicle can start. Any person with a blood-alcohol content of 0.025 or greater registers a failed test with the secretary of state’s office and faces an extension of the time the device must be used.
