California considers change to DUI law on Ignition Interlock Devices

A California Senate committee is considering a new bill which would lower the intoxication BAC for an ignition interlock device.  Presently, the BAC level of 0.20 and higher is the threshhold for installation of the device.  The California Senate committee is considering lowering the threshhold to 0.16.  And depending on the particular circumstances of the DUI, the device would be required for one to three years.

As if the California DUI laws aren't strict enough, this proposal would serve only to increase the costs to the individual DUI defendant, costs which are already astronomical.
