New legislation – signed by Gov. Kasich on January 4, 2017 – is aimed at reducing the number of repeat OVI offenders. The law is called “Annie’s Law” in response to the tragic death of Annie Rooney, who was struck by an impaired driver. The legislation will allow judges to offer shorter suspension periods and unlimited driving hours with the installation of an interlock breathalyzer in the vehicles of first-time offenders. The interlock system will require the driver to blow into the breathalyzer system before the vehicle will start, thus ensuring that the operator is not under the influence before operating the vehicle. This legislation will go into effect April 4, 2017. To learn more, you can review the relevant portions of House Bill 388.
