Say What?!?! Drunk Driver in Crash Had 78 Prior License Suspensions

The Daily Record reports that a man whose license has been suspended 78 times was allegedly driving drunk when he crashed into a pickup truck, injuring a man and his 4-year-old daughter Monday.
His license was first suspended on March 3, 1987, for DWI. Since then, his license was suspended 12 times for that same offense.

This story illustrates the importance of mandating ignition interlocks for all convicted drunk drivers. License suspensions simply do not work.

If a convicted drunk driver is going to get behind the wheel of a car, isn't it better to know that they are sober?

Support mandatory ignition interlocks in your state.
