More pushback over Utah’s .05% DUI threshold
SHOULD UTAH ENFORCE EXISTING DUI LAWS? “Utah has trouble enforcing a prior law requiring drivers with DUI convictions to install breathalyzer devices that lock the ignition until a sober reading is recorded, the American Beverage Institute said Tuesday in a prepared statement. . . . The trade organization cites a November analysis by KSL-TV that found 72 percent of Utah’s convicted drunken drivers failed to install the mandatory device. The group also points to a separate report from the Traffic Injury Research Foundation stating that Utah’s rate of installed ignition interlocks per conviction was 10 percent in 2015. (Manufacturers reported the Utah rate was higher, at about 50 percent).”
