Alabama Still Needs Program to Install Alcohol Detectors for DUI Offenders
According to state officials, Alabama still doesn't have a program to install them.
Alabama Office of Court officials say that's because of budget concerns.
The device is supposed to stop people from starting their cars if their blood alcohol level is .02 or higher.
That's less than the .08, which is the benchmark for a DUI charge.
Offenders are supposed to pay $75 to install the devices.
Alabama is the 50th state to pass laws requiring them.
