Life-Saving Drunk Driving Bill Signed Into California Law; Judges Can Order First Offenders To Use Ignition Interlocks

Posted by: News_Desk on 09/28/2016 02:47 PM
Sacramento, CA...Today, Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 1046 into law, expanding a four-county pilot program that requires ignition interlocks for all drunk drivers. SB 1046, authored by Senator Jerry Hill, allows first-time drunk driving offenders to drive with an ignition interlock following arrest or conviction, instead of forfeiting their driving privileges altogether or driving with a route-restricted license. Repeat offenders will now be required to install an ignition interlock after conviction.

The juice is precisely measured and prizes are awarded to all the winners, with special prizes for the top finishers in the Championship Stomp. And, new this year, every team gets their very own Stomp Bag of Swag!Teams are encouraged to appear in costume, or not, and prizes are awarded for costumes based on originality, design, and effort.But there’s a lot more to the Grape Stomp than the wanton destruction of two tons of perfectly good grapes.
