The statistics are impressive, and even MADD officials are surprised it has been so successful. Here is the KHON2 report.
Since the law started on January 1st of this year, the law has prevented drunk drivers with a blood alcohol level over .08 on 466 occasions.
983 drivers have had the ignition interlock device installed in their cars.
Of those arrested for DUI, about 15% have participated in the program. Compared to national statistics, that is a very good rate.
Rep. Har says she plans to introduce legislation in 2012 to improve the law. Currently, the law allows only first time DUI offenders to participate. Har wants to broaden participation to repeat offenders.
