HOUSTON COUNTY -- The Alabama legislature passed SB 319 earlier this week making it the 21st state to require ignition interlocks for all drivers convicted of driving under the influence who have a suspended license.
For Douglas Flood, the father of a victim, this new legislation is worth the time and money.
"Even if it just saves one life, it's done it's purpose," Flood said.
Flood lost his daughter, Angela, to a drunk driver in October 2008.
After Governor Robert Bentley signs the bill, it will go into affect within three months.
If a convicted driver chooses not to install the device, he or she will simply forfeit driving privileges.
