Christie Conditionally Vetoes Ignition Interlock Bill

Ignition Interlock Bill: On March 23rd, Governor Christie sent a conditional veto message to the legislature, rejecting the proposed Bill 1368 which would fundamentally change DWI sentencing law. The Governor’s recommendations call for the installation of ignition interlock devices in every instance for longer periods. The idea of shortened driver’s license suspension periods is eliminated. The bill, along with the suggested changes, now returns to the Assembly and Senate for an up or down vote.

An ignition interlock device or breath alcohol ignition interlock device is a mechanism that is installed on a motor vehicle’s dashboard. The driver must exhale into the device in order for the vehicle to be started. If the resultant breath-alcohol concentration analyzed result is greater than the programmed blood alcohol concentration , the device prevents the engine from being started.
