Drivers with a history of DUIs could have another chance behind the wheel in Illinois.

A new bill would give restricted licenses to people who have had their licenses revoked, including drivers with four or more DUIs.

Their vehicles would need to have an ignition interlock device which acts as a breathalyzer.

The car won’t start if the driver does not pass the test.

State Representative Elaine Nekritz says, “For those individuals that have demonstrated that they’ve gotten their life back together and are wanting to be successful citizens again, I think we should give them that chance.”

Drivers would also need to be clean from drugs or alcohol for three years to qualify.
