Interlock system law for DWI offenders

Amarillo, TX - DWI offenders will avoid license suspension according to a new Texas bill.

Signed by Governor Gregg Abbott on Tuesday, the law allows offenders who blow under 0.15% to install an ignition interlock system in their car.

It works like a breathalyzer but keeps cars from starting if driving is impaired.

The new law takes effect in September.
