New law requires ignition locks for DUIs

Gov. Dannel Malloy signed new rules into law yesterday for people convicted of drunken driving.



The bill requires anyone convicted of a DUI to install an ignition-lock system that will only start the car if the driver passes a Breathalyzer test.



It also cuts license suspensions for convictions from 90 days to 45 days.



The new rules take effect July 1.
