Ignition-interlock device can help America’s war against drunk driving car accident deaths

Have you been injured in a car accident caused by a drunk driver? If so, that accident might have been prevented if more states adopted laws mandating ignition-interlock devices in the vehicles of those who are known to be drunk drivers. Fewer such accidents also might occur with tougher actions in DUI cases. That’s why law firms such as Texas’ Jim S. Adler & Associates stand ready to fight for drunk driving victims’ rights in the legal arena.
Drunk drivers, in effect, are at war against America. While we agonize over foreign threats, it’s domestic drunk drivers who have slaughtered more than half a million Americans since 1982 – with another 16,000 such deaths expected by this year’s end. An ignition-interlock device can reduce this carnage. Before starting a car, a driver must breathe into the device, which can detect alcohol and not allow the car to be started if alcohol is present. Illinois, Louisiana, Arizona and eight other states require such devices in the vehicles of those who have had a .08 reading in a DUI conviction. North Carolina, Florida and six other states require them for those with a .15 reading in a DUI conviction. Missouri, Texas and four other states require them after a repeat DUI conviction. California lawmakers adopted a bill to initiate a four-county pilot program for such devices, including Los Angeles. Otherwise, applying an ignition interlock is up to a judge’s discretion. California alone, by the way, had 1,029 alcohol-related driving deaths last year. Alert your legislators if you support such laws – and alert a car accident lawyer or drunk driving attorney with Jim S. Adler & Associates if you need legal support after being hurt by a drunk driver and deserve financial compensation. A knowledgeable drunk driving lawyer or car accident lawyer stands ready to help. Simply submit a free case evaluation form and let the process of gaining justice begin.
