Governor Bentley makes Ala. DUI law more strict

MONTGOMERY, AL (WAFF) - The governor make Alabama's DUI law more strict by signing senate bill 361 into law Tuesday morning.

The new law would require some convicted drunk drivers to install ignition interlocks on their cars.

Those locks would make it impossible to start their cars without first testing their blood alcohol levels.

Madison Senator Bill Holtzclaw sponsored this bill in an effort to reduce drunk driving accidents.

Alabama is the last state to adopt some form of ignition interlock device.
