There's a big crack down when it comes to punishment for DUI's, and it all starts July 1 in Virginia.
A new law goes into effect requiring first time offenders have an ignition interlock device installed in their vehicles.
Right now, it's only required first offenders who blow a .15 or higher. The device won't let you start the car if you have alcohol in your system.
The user fee can cost anywhere from $50 to $80 a month along with an installation fee that is up to a few $100.
Defense attorneys say only a few shops in our area are able to install the devices. They think the new law could leave first-time offenders stranded.
"There's definitely gonna be potential waiting periods that people run into at the front end of the program where they are completely unable to operate a vehicle for any reason because they're on a waiting list for days or weeks or even potentially a month or so," said Abram Pafford, the defense attorney.
DUI offenders must use the ignition interlock device for a minimum of six months.
