New DUI Bill Could Mean Safer Roads

A new bill in Illinois would allow drivers who have more than four DUIs and have gotten their license taken away a new opportunity to get behind the wheel.

Rather than having drivers who do not have a license and shouldn’t be on the road driving out of necessity, the new law would allow DUI offenders to drive in specially equipped vehicles that where breathalyzer-equipped and would only start if you were sober. Other details of the bill are still in the works including having drivers complete rehabilitation programs and three years of sobriety but this new bill could mean a better life for many drivers and safer roads everyone.

The bill’s chief House sponsor, state Rep. Elaine Nekritz, D-Northbrook, said she believes in giving people another chance if they’ve turned their lives around, Nekritz is getting backing from MADD and AAIM because they think the law’s restrictions would weed out offenders who haven’t put their drinking days behind them.
