SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

Driving under the influence; first offenders; secure transdermal alcohol monitoring. Provides that in the case of an adult offender's first DUI conviction when the offender's blood alcohol content was less than 0.15, the court may, upon request of the offender, order that the offender (i) wear a transdermal alcohol monitoring device that continuously monitors the person's blood alcohol level and (ii) refrain from alcohol consumption and that these shall be the only conditions of the offender's driver's license restriction. Such offenders will no longer be required to have an ignition interlock as a condition of a restricted license. The bill also provides that it is a Class 1 misdemeanor to tamper with or in any way attempt to circumvent the operation of a secure transdermal alcohol monitoring device.
