OKLAHOMA

4.5 54

STATE SNAPSHOT

WAYS TO IMPROVE

In 2011, Oklahoma enacted a law requiring all first-time drunk drivers to install an interlock in order to drive during a 180-day administrative license revocation. MADD considers this law to be all-offender.

• Make sure the lifesaving 2017 interlock law is implemented and not weakened • Advertise the ignition interlock law during twice yearly federally funded crackdowns on drunk driving (Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over)

OREGON
