DUI Bill Heads to ND Governors Desk

Posted: Updated:

A bill to toughen North Dakota drunk driving laws is on Gov. Jack Dalrymple desk.

The Senate passed it unanimously Thursday. The House approved the bill 69-23 on Wednesday.

The bill includes increased fines and other penalties.

Along with increased fines and other penalties, the measure requires jail time or community service work for first-time DUI offenders with a blood alcohol content of 0.16 percent.

That's twice the state's legal limit of 0.08 percent.

And it includes mandatory jail time for second time offenders and mandatory participation in the so-called 24/7 sobriety program for repeat offenders.
