AN ACT relative to ignition lock requirements.

 

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

1  Alcohol Ignition Interlock Program.  Amend RSA 265-A:36, I-I-b to read as follows:

I.  Any person whose license or permission to drive has been revoked or suspended for an aggravated DWI offense under RSA 265-A:18, I(b) or I(c), or a subsequent DWI offense under RSA 265-A:18, IV shall be required by the court after the period of revocation or suspension to install an ignition interlock device as defined in RSA 259:43-a in any vehicle registered to that person or used by that person [on a regular basis], for not less than 12 months nor more than 2 years.  Installation and monitoring costs shall be paid by the offender.  A certificate proving installation of the device shall be provided to the division of motor vehicles as a condition precedent to reinstatement of the individual's license to drive, and the division may mark the person's license and the person's number plate by use of a striping sticker accordingly.

I-a.  Any person who is convicted of driving while under suspension or revocation resulting from a DWI offense shall be required by the court to install an ignition interlock device in any vehicle registered to that person or used by that person [on a regular basis], for the remaining period of suspension or revocation plus an additional period not less than 12 months nor more than 2 years.  The court may order such installation on a temporary basis prior to conviction as a condition of bail.

I-b.  To the extent that technology does not exist to permit the installation or safe operation of any particular vehicle type when equipped with an interlock, the court may order that a restraining device which disables the vehicle be placed on any such vehicle registered to or used [on a regular basis] by a person required to install an ignition interlock device.

2  Alcohol Ignition Interlock Program.  Amend RSA 265-A:36, III to read as follows:

III.  Any person under the age of 21 whose license or permission to drive has been revoked or suspended under RSA 265-A:18 may be required by the court after the period of revocation or suspension to install an ignition interlock device as defined in RSA 259:43-a in any vehicle registered to that person or used by that person [on a regular basis], until the age of 21 or for not less than 12 months, whichever is longer.

3  Effective Date.  This act shall take effect 60 days after its passage.
