Ignition interlock program on hold

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, AL (WAFF) -

Alabama's new law for dealing with DUI's is off to a slow start. The state has not yet implemented a program to install ignition interlocks on cars.

Officials with the Alabama Officer of Courts say implementation is on hold because of funding concerns.

Offenders are required to pay $75 a month for the device. The state's law doesn't say where revenue from that fee should be allocated.

The devices keep a person convicted of DUI from turning on their car if their blood alcohol level is .02 or higher.
