AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law and the state  finance  law,
  in  relation  to  the  creation  of  the  mandatory ignition interlock

  Section  1.    Legislative  intent.  The  legislature hereby finds and
declares that ignition  interlock  devices  are  highly  successful  law
enforcement  tools  for preventing driving while intoxicated recidivism.
Current law does not mandate ignition interlock devices for  all  offen-

vated driving while intoxicated or a second violation of  subdivision  2
or  3  of  section 1192 of the vehicle and traffic law within five years
pursuant to paragraph (c) of subdivision 1-a  of  section  1193  of  the
vehicle  and traffic law, who have also been given probation as a condi-

first  time  offenders  who  had  mandatory  ignition  interlock devices
installed in their vehicles were sixty percent less likely to commit the
offense of driving while intoxicated  again.  These  studies  have  also
found  a  correlating  economic  benefit  in reducing the expenditure of
court resources and damages created by repeat offenders.  For every  one

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
