House Bill Would Alter DUI Consequences

The Virginia General Assembly is considering a law that would change the punishment for first-time DUI offenders.


Currently, if someone is found guilty of DUI in the Commonwealth and has a blood alcohol level under .15, he or she loses the right to drive altogether, and his or her driver’s license becomes suspended for a year.


House Bill 945 would change this, allowing the offender to drive as long as they have an ignition interlock system installed on his or her vehicle.
