St. Louis area drivers might be interested to know about a new proposal in the U.S. House of Representatives. Law makers have proposed new requirements for drunk drivers, the proposal would require all those convicted of a DWI offense to have ignition interlock installed in their car.
Ignition interlock is a device that measures blood alcohol levels each time the driver gets in their car to drive. Each state has its own requirements when it comes to these devices. Right now, Missouri only requires interlock for repeat offenders.
Ignition interlock is only one of many different penalties a person may face as a result of DWI charges. However, in order for a person to be convicted of a DWI in Missouri, there needs to be sufficient evidence. An experienced DWI lawyer in St. Louis may be able to have charges reduced, or even dropped depending on the evidence in the case.
