required for persons convicted of DUI

Persons who have been convicted of driving under the influence
will be required to install and maintain an ignition interlock
device on the vehicle they intend to drive. The device will

the car from being started if the person's blood alcohol content
is above a set level.
House Bill (HB) 19 which has
been signed into law was sponsored by Kevin Meyer, R-Anchorage.
"HB 19 changes the dynamic for DUI offenders. Now, if they

will make our roads safer, and send a stronger message to offenders
by reinforcing their punishment every day."
HB 19 takes effect Jan. 1,
