ANNAPOLIS, Md. —Getting drunk drivers off the road is part of new proposals Wednesday from Mothers Against Drunk Driving. The proposals come as the General Assembly's new legislative session begins. It all has to do with ignition interlocks.
The ignition interlock devices are breath alcohol analyzers that connect to a car's ignition. If the person's breath is over the accepted limit, the car won't start.
The push now is over that accepted limit and when the devices would be required in the state of Maryland.
"This is nothing more than common sense. Ignition interlocks work," Del. Ben Kramer said.
It's being call Noah's Law. It's a push to require ignition interlocks for all convicted drunk drivers with a blood alcohol content of .08 or more.
