RATING THE STATES
Missouri became the 18th state to require ignition interlocks for all convicted drunk drivers in 2012.
MADD applauds Missouri on its continued efforts to keep roads safe. Sobriety checkpoints and on-going refinement of the ignition interlock programs are proven ways to continue saving lives.
Montana is a one-star state and has done little to reduce drunk driving, starting on the first offense, since the enactment of a .08 BAC per se law in 2003.
MADD challenges the legislature to take action and provide law enforcement with the tools needed to get drunk drivers off the road. Law are needed in Montana to require ignition interlocks for all offenders and to use high- visibility enforcement and no-refusal crackdown activities.
Nebraska continues to see an increase in the number of interlocks installed since improvements to the state’s all- offender interlock law were made in 2011.
MADD applauds Nebraska on its continued efforts to keep roads safe. Sobriety checkpoints and ongoing refinement to the interlock programs are proven ways to protect the public.
Nevada has one of the weakest interlock laws in the nation. Improvements are needed to recognize the benefits of an effective ignition interlock law and save lives on the roads.
MADD challenges lawmakers to take action and require the use of ignition interlocks for all convicted drunk drivers.
NEW HAMPSHIRE 4
In 2014, New Hampshire improved its DUI law to become the 23rd state to enact legislation to require ignition interlocks for all convicted drunk drivers. Passage of this law will result in a greater reduction in drunk driving fatalities.
MADD applauds New Hampshire on its continued efforts to keep roads safe and encourages the use of no-refusal crackdown activities.
