What do you think??

For those of you who live in Illinois Im sure you have heard about the new DUI law. If you haven't after the new year the law states that if you get pulled over for 1 DUI you have to put the breathalizer in your car to start the engine. What does everyone think about this?

Personally I think that they should put it in all new cars, so it prevents you from even getting that first DUI, but thats just my opinion.

  • i dont live in illinois but i think this is a great idea! My husband was arrested for two DUI in about six months (totally wanted to kill him). Me and my husband actually had this conversation a few weeks ago about how we think they should be manditory in all vehicle it would really help with the DUI problem.

  • Its a good idea. The problem with DUI is that your judgment was impaired when you made the decision to drive.

  • I think it's a wonderful idea! It can be a standard item on all new cars. There's no excuse for the irresponsible drunk drivers.
