House Bill 152
150th General Assembly (2019 - 2020)
The General Assembly has ended, the current status is the final status.
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 21 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO IGNITION INTERLOCK DEVICE REQUIREMENTS.
In 2014, the General Assembly created an ignition interlock device program under §§ 4177C and 4177G of Title 21 of the Delaware Code (“IID program”). The IID program provides individuals whose license or driving privileges have been revoked following a conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs the ability to drive during their revocation period while putting measures in place to protect the public. This Act closes a loophole in the IID program that allows a person to avoid installing an IID in certain circumstance and makes changes to §§ 4177C and 4177G to ensure the provisions are consistent and operate in harmony with each other. This Act also adds a provision clarifying the process for the reinstatement of an individual’s license or driving privileges after the individual has been disqualified from the IID program. Finally, this Act makes numerous technical corrections to conform existing law to the standards of the Delaware Legislation Drafting Manual, including to ensure consistency of language throughout the provisions included in this Act.
