Bill would allow first-time DWI offenders to get restricted license
The House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee voted 16-1 to establish a restricted license for first-time, drunk-driving offenders after they have had their license suspended for 14 days.
To participate in the program, a driver would have to pay for an ignition interlock device that prevents a vehicle from starting if the person has alcohol on his or her breath.
But Rep. Gene Charron, R-Chester, said he had a friend who was convicted of driving while intoxicated who told him, “they want me to go to counseling, but I have no way to get there.”
