Michigan House To Vote On Drunk Driving Legislation

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan drunk driving laws may be changing in the near future.  

Repeat drunk drivers would be able to have a restricted drivers license by installing a breath alcohol ignition device in their car.

The secretary of state would issue a limited license to people if they participate in a sobriety court program and have an ignition interlock device.  

The legislation goes in front of the state House Wednesday. Lawmakers are voting to extend a 2010 law indefinitely.   

A restricted drivers license only allows travel to and from work, school and other approved programs.
