DUI Reform Bill in Alabama
Mothers Against Drunk Driving is determined to protect families in Alabama from drunk drivers and is helping to get lifesaving legislation passed in the Alabama House of Representatives. A House Committee passed a DUI Reform Bill yesterday that will implement an ignition interlock law for all convicted drunk drivers - including first-time convicted drunk drivers with an illegal blood alcohol concentration of point zero eight or greater. MADD representatives are urging the House leadership to bring the bill to a floor vote as soon as possible because, they say, drunk driving continues to be a problem in Alabama. Statistics prove that hundreds of lives are lost due to crashes caused by drunk drivers, contributing to a large percent of all traffic fatalities in Alabama.
