Take Action – Florida

Advocate for Change

Florida has required interlocks for first-time convicted drunk drivers with a BAC of .15 or greater. In 2014, the state expanded the existing law to allow judges to order interlocks for first-time offenders with a BAC of .08 to .14 in lieu of a 10-day vehicle impoundment. The new law requires a legislative study committee to examine all-offender interlock legislation and issue a report to the legislature before the 2015 session. MADD asks lawmakers to do more to stop drunk driving and require the use of ignition interlocks for all convicted drunk drivers.
