Intoxalock applauds Iowa legislature on taking necessary steps to strengthen drunk driving laws in the state, in response to recent criticism of Iowa House Study Bill 109.
House Study Bill 109 states that anybody arrested for any alcohol-related offense may be required to participate in a multi-layered drunk driving prevention program including twice-a-day alcohol testing and ignition interlock devices.
In addition to House Study Bill 109, Intoxalock, a major ignition interlock provider, recommends implementing two additional requirements to maximize the effectiveness of eliminating drunk driving in Iowa:
- Mandatory ignition interlocks devices for all offenders and
- Immediate installation of interlocks following a drunk driving conviction.
