Under existing law, Act 2018-517 of the 2018 Regular Session provides that a person charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and approved for any pretrial diversion program is required to install an approved ignition interlock device for a minimum of six months or the duration of the pretrial diversion program. Act 2018-517 further amends the driving under the influence law to delete this requirement effective five years from the effective date of Act 2018-517
This bill would repeal the future amendment of the driving under the influence law to preserve the provisions of the law requiring the installation of an ignition interlock device in pretrial diversion cases and would amend Act 2018-517, to make conforming changes
