MADD Wants Mandatory Breathalyzers

Mandatory ignition interlocks on vehicles for first-time DUI offenders would prevent multiple drunken driving offenses, a Boise Mothers Against Drunk Driving official said Monday. And they would have prevented Wendy Myrick of Nampa from what Meridian police said was her 5th DUI arrest in 10 years, MADD's Miren Aburusa said. Meridian Police say they arrested Myrick, 41, Sunday night for DUI, driving without privileges and transport of an open container. She was later booked into the Ada County jail. MADD advocates mandatory ignition interlocks, or in-car breathalyzers, for all first-time DUI offenders. The devices require convicted drunken drivers to prove they are sober before their vehicles will start/Mike Butts, Idaho Press Tribune. More here.

Question: Should in-car breathalyzers be mandatory for all DUI offenders in Idaho?
