Shumlin Signs Bill To Expand Anti-DUI Devices

Print More

Governor Peter Shumlin has signed a bill into law expanding the use of ignition interlock devices for people convicted of drunken driving.

The voluntary program allows people convicted for driving under the influence to continue driving as long as they have an on-board breathalyzer machine that prevents their vehicles from starting if they’ve been drinking.

Last week, Shumlin signed a bill that expands their use.

He said the devices make Vermont roads safer while allowing offenders to continue driving to get to work and support their families.
