MADD urges interlocks for all convicted drunken drivers

| Tuesday, November 28, 2006

The organization Mothers Against Drunk Drivers announced Nov. 20, that it will seek breath-test interlock devices for all convicted drunken drivers - including first offenders.

The group isn't the only one calling for the devices. The U.S. Department of Transportation is also joining MADD in its call for wider use of the high-tech system, according to Forbes.

Once it's installed, the device prevents a vehicle from starting if alcohol is detected on the driver's breath.
