SD Governor Signs Bill Allowing Ignition Locks
March 15, 2011, 4:43 PM
PIERRE, SD -
Gov. Dennis Daugaard has signed into law a measure allowing a sobriety program to use ignition locking devices that prevent people from starting their vehicle if they have been drinking.
The bill would add the locking devices to the state's 24/7 program, which allows people convicted of alcohol-related crimes to stay out of jail if they avoid alcohol. Some participants report to law enforcement offices twice a day to take breath tests. Others wear bracelets that detect alcohol in their system.
Attorney General Marty Jackley wants to run a pilot project with a handful of the ignition locking devices. People who use them will be required to pay for their use.
