North Dakota bill to authorize ignition interlock device

The North Dakota Legislature is considering a new bill that might restore those individuals' ability to drive by authorizing the installation of an ignition interlock device. The Grand Forks Herald reported that North Dakota's House Bill 1164 proposes the use of ignition interlock devices as a substitute for the current 24/7 program.

Man charged for DUI after truck accident

A 35-year-old man was accused of driving drunk after he was involved in an accident in central North Dakota on Dec. 7. The two-vehicle crash involved the accused man's 1999 Ford pickup truck and a tractor-trailer. As a result of the collision, the man's truck was sliced in half, and both vehicles were disabled.

How intoxication levels affect driving abilities

Just like every other state, North Dakota has a legal blood-alcohol concentration limit of .08 percent for drivers who are over the age of 21. Drivers who are under the age of 21 are not allowed to drive with any amount of alcohol in their system. Although the legal BAC limit for drivers is .08 percent, statistics show that the majority of drinking and driving deaths occur when a driver has a BAC of .1 percent or greater.

What three tests are commonly used for field sobriety tests?

In North Dakota, when a police officer or patrolman suspects that a person is driving while intoxicated, they must first establish probable cause before they can make an arrest. Most of the time, an officer will establish probable cause by pulling the driver over and asking them to perform one of several standardized tests. Knowing what to expect during the stop may help a driver perform the tests without stress or anxiety, which can potentially produce a more accurate result.

North Dakota examines constitutionality of DUI test laws

The North Dakota Supreme Court faces a complex decision in the matter of criminal penalties for refusal to submit to field or chemical testing in potential DUI cases. Two October 2013 cases took center stage in the court's deliberation as attorneys for two defendants charged with DUI argued that the state's new laws go against the fourth amendment. The fourth amendment of the United States Constitution states that citizens should not be subjected to unreasonable search and seizure.

24/7 program aimed at preventing repeat DUI offenses

There are a lot of discussions about the best ways to encourage repeat DUI offenders to avoid further offenses in North Dakota and around the United States. Some states utilize ignition interlock devices, which require drivers to blow an alcohol-free test result before allowing them to start their cars. Judges in some states have moved to have these devices installed in the cars of repeat DUI offenders.
