When you need protection from the consequences of a DUI charge

Imagine having to get to school or to work in Bowling Green without a driver's license. How would you get to the store or to a doctor's appointment if you could not drive? Sure, public transportation, taxicabs or some of your friends might offer some help, but they can be expensive, and, let’s face it, your friends certainly do not offer the same convenience and reliability as walking out your front door and getting behind the wheel of your car.

Law would require ignition lock device in Kentucky after two DUIs

After a DUI conviction, one of the most invasive types of punishment that a court has the ability to hand down is the requirement that an ignition interlock device be installed on the vehicle driven by the person convicted. In its most basic description, the device contains a breathalyzer which must be used whenever the driver tries to start the vehicle. If the breathalyzer detects that the blood alcohol concentration of the operator's breath exceeds .02 alcohol concentration, the ignition will not activate. Not only will the vehicle not start, but failure to do the test or failing the test, automatically notifies law enforcement of the violation. The Kentucky Code addresses these requirements.
