Families of Victims Killed by Drunk Drivers Call for Passage of Hill’s SB 1046

Families of victims killed by drunk drivers brought jarring physical evidence – the vehicle wrecked by a DUI offender – to the Capitol to demonstrate the need to prevent people from driving drunk. They joined Senator Jerry Hill, Mothers Against Drunk Driving representatives and law enforcement partners to urge passage of Hill’s SB 1046. The bill requires ignition interlocks for all convicted DUI offenders. View the video of the news conference video here. See photos here.
