2010 Changes to Tennessee DUI Law Part 3- Unlimited Driving with Interlock Device

The Tennesee Legislature made several changes to the Tennessee DUI law this past legislative session that went into effect for DUI violations after June 23, 2010. One of such changes amended the law to actually allow DUI offenders the ability to drive more. Under the previous law, once convicted of DUI, one could basically only drive to and from work and to and from full-time school. An amendment to the law for those convicted after June 23, 2010, allows a judge to permit those convicted of DUI for the first time the option of installing an interlock device that measures breath alcohol, at their own expense, so that such person can operate a vehicle without geographic restrictions. While the cost of installing and maintaing an interlock device is not cheap such change in the law is very important to many people charged with DUI that cannot operate under the old restrictions. Those with children were legally unable to get their child to a doctor visit, athletic events, school, etc. and such amendment accomodates those individuals and many others.
