Texas: new law would mandate ignition interlock on first DWI offence

From DailyTexanOnline.com:
According to the MADD website, Texas is the fifth highest-ranking state in the nation in the number of DWIs reported and is home to 124,662 people who committed three or more DWIs in the past year. Logan said the new legislation does not apply to DWI offenders who have injured or killed anyone.
“I’ve seen more innocent people die from DWI collisions than any other way,” said UT Police Department Chief Robert Dahlstrom. “I’ve seen it happen over and over. [DWIs] will only not be a significant issue when there are no more DWIs on the road.”  MORE
