The law made ignition interlock devices, once only an option for extreme offenders, mandatory for anyone convicted of driving under the influence. The THP says the ignition interlock is the only way we have to actually monitor DUI offenders and their driving.

THP expects the new law to help law enforcement crack down on drunk driving like similar laws have in other states.
