New Jersey Looks to Stiffen DUI Penalties

Under the legislation — approved June 26 in the Assembly by a 46-15 vote — first-time offenders could be ordered to install locks on their ignition systems that require a Breathalyzer-type test before their vehicle will start. Such interlocking devices are currently in use, but only for multiple offenders with stricter punishments.
