Letter in Support of Georgia House Bill (HB) 439 to Require the Use of Ignition Interlock Devices (IIDs) by All Convicted Drunk Drivers

150 150 Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety

Under current law in Georgia, ignition interlocks are required for all repeat offenders for a period of 12 months; however, they are only an option for first-time offenders and first refusals in lieu of a restricted or
suspended license. Information from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) on the effectiveness of IIDs in Georgia notes that over the twelve-year period from December 1, 2006 to December 31, 2018, IIDs
prevented 35,496 attempts to drive drunk in the state including 4,339 attempts in 2018 alone. Expanding the law to include all first-time offenders would improve the effectiveness of the IID program and help prevent
drunk driving.

Letter Opposing Legislative Bill (LB) 271 to Weaken Nebraska’s All-Offender Ignition Interlock Device (IID) Law

150 150 Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety

LB 271 would weaken the IID law by allowing participation in a 24/7 sobriety program and use of a 24/7 sobriety program driving permit as an alternative to the IID requirement. This change would not prevent an offender from getting behind the wheel and driving drunk, which the IID technology requirement does, and therefore fails to safeguard the offender and all other road users.
