(S.D.)- AG Releases Results Of Sobriety Program

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 05/20/2013 02:41 PM
     PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Nearly 120 people have taken nearly 125,000 sobriety tests using an ignition interlock device as part of South Dakota's 24/7 Sobriety Program.
 
     Attorney General Marty Jackley released the testing results of the ignition interlock device on Monday. The devices have been a part of the 24/7 Sobriety Program since October.
 
     Jackley says participants using the ignition interlock devices passed with a 99.5 percent rate.
 
     The ignition interlock device is installed in a motor vehicle, and a defender is required to test twice a day, whether they drive the vehicle or not. Participants must pay for the devices.
 
     Says Jackley, "This offender pay program takes the burden off taxpayers by keeping qualifying offenders out of jail yet holding them accountable for their actions."
