2 drunken driving bills awaiting votes in Illinois House

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – Two bills that would affect motorists with repeat drunken driving convictions are awaiting final votes in the Illinois House.

The State Journal-Register reports (http://bit.ly/1JCl853 ) one bill would require offenders with at least two convictions to have a device measure their blood alcohol level before they can start their vehicles for at least five years.

The legislation was inspired by a 17-year-old Elgin girl who was killed in a drunken driving crash in 2003. The state runs the ignition device program.

The other measure would allow offenders with four or more drunken driving convictions to apply for a restricted driving permit.

Those who apply must prove they are alcohol and drug free for at least three years and have the ignition devices installed in their vehicles.
