There is a new law in effect in Nevada that requires all drivers who have been convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol to install an ignition interlock device in their cars. As of Monday, October 1, any driver who has been pulled over for reckless driving and has registered with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 or higher will be required to use one of the devices for six months.
There is a new law taking effect as part of Nevada’s continuing efforts to lower the number of auto fatalities in the state annually. Governor Brian Sandoval recently signed into law Senate bill 259,  which requires all drivers who have been convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol in the state of Nevada to use an ignition interlock device on their vehicle for six months. Previously, those who had only been convicted once for driving under the influence generally had their license suspended.
