1 Law Enforcement and the Laws About Virginia Winter 2009 MADD Honors Virginia Beach Prosecutor with National Award Charisse Black, Senior Assistant Commonwealth s Attorney for the City of Virginia Beach was one of fifteen people and law enforcement agencies nationwide to be awarded a MADD National President s Award in The Award presented to Black was in the category: Criminal Justice Award Prosecutor. The award was presented on behalf of MADD National President Laura Dean- Mooney by Christopher Konschak, Executive Director of MADD Virginia, and Kaye Walsh, State Vice Chairwoman of MADD Virginia. According to a statement issued by MADD National, Black received this award because of her extensive knowledge of current Virginia DUI laws, thorough collection of facts, and ability to successfully convict the majority of DUI cases. Also cited was Black s diligence in notifying MADD of court dates involving DUI manslaughter or injury cases, which enabled MADD to ensure that representatives were present in court to provide support to victims and their families. Black joined the staff of thevirginia Beach Commonwealth s Attorney s in October She currently works on the 2nd Precinct Trial Team. Harvey Bryant, Commonwealth s Attorney for the City of Virginia Beach stated, I m very proud of Charisse. Her efforts and those of other prosecutors in my office have been directed at seeing that those who drive drunk are convicted and punished without delay. Charisse embodies the get tough attitude that this office has toward drunk drivers. She is the only prosecutor being recognized with this award nationwide this year, and one of just three Virginians to ever receive a MADD National award. Bryant added, I also applaud MADD VA; their courtroom monitoring program is spreading across the nation. In This Issue... VA recipient of MADD Presidents Award... Page 1 Ignition Interlocks...

2 Ignition Interlocks Although the technology exists and there is public support, laws have not yet been passed nationwide that mandate ignition interlock technology for all convicted DUI offenders. Although Virginia was one of the first states to pass legislation requiring ignition interlock for DUI convictions with over.15 BAC, MADD needs your help getting legislation passed in Virginia that will require ignition interlock devices for all DUI convictions. Interlock Facts: Research shows that those convicted of drunk driving for the first time have driven drunk more than 87 times before their first arrest. Two-thirds of drunk driving offenders continue to drive even when their license is suspended. In 2008, there were 1.4 million DUI/DWI arrests but only 180,000 vehicles with ignition interlock nationwide. Only 1 in 10 convicted drunk drivers each year has an interlock on their vehicle. In 2008, 11,773 people were killed in crashes involving a drunk driver with a BAC of.08 or higher in the US; 319 of those deaths were in Virginia. Source: Studies have shown that ignition interlocks, used with treatment, hard license suspensions, and in vehicles until they are no longer needed, can decrease repeat offenses by 64%. A study released in October 2009, entitled Attitudes Toward In-Vehicle Advanced Alcohol Detection Technology found that: 84% of survey respondents supported requiring convicted DWI offenders to put alcohol ignition interlocks in their vehicles. 64% said that having advanced alcohol detection in all vehicles is a good or very good idea, assuming the technology is reliable. 30% responded that advanced alcohol detection is a bad idea; among those respondents, 1/3 cited concerns about privacy or government interference and 20% said not all drivers needed to be screened. 42% percent of respondents who drive said they would want an advanced alcohol detection device in their next vehicle if it were available as an option at a reasonable price. Of the 54% who said they did not want a device, 44% said they do not drink alcohol so it would not be useful. Most people said that a price less than $500 would be reasonable. The report concluded that the majority of the US population is receptive to the idea of having advanced alcohol detection devices in all vehicles to prevent people from driving with an illegal BAC. (Full report available at: Currently, only twelve states require or provide strong incentives for ignition interlocks for all persons convicted of DUI - Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Nebraska, New York, New Mexico, Utah and Washington. California has instituted a major pilot program covering four counties. In Virginia in 2008, 31,469 drivers were convicted of DUI. Virginia code states that the court will require that an ignition interlock device be installed on every vehicle owned/co-owned or operated as a condition of restricted driving privileges or full restoration of driving privileges for convictions of: -- Second DUI conviction within ten years, -- Third DUI conviction within ten years, -- First DUI conviction with a BAC of 0.15 percent or higher. Virginia DMV requires that an ignition interlock device be installed as a condition of restricted driving privileges or full restoration of driving privileges, even if the court does not require it, for: -- Second conviction for DUI within five years, -- Third or subsequent DUI within ten years, -- Conviction for three separate DUI offenses within ten years. Convictions for a first offense violation of the ignition interlock restriction or other restricted license provisions will result in a DMV revocation for one year; two or more convictions will result in a three-year revocation. Residents of Virginia and the other 37 states that do not yet have or require strong incentives for Ignition Interlock after a first DUI conviction can go online at for instructions on how to contact the appropriate legislators in support of mandating ignition interlocks for all convicted DUI offenders.

We need your help to get legislation passed to require ignition interlocks for all DUI convictions. Delegate Sal Iaquinto is sponsoring a bill that makes ignition interlocks mandatory for all DUI offenders. This bill provides that a person who is convicted of DUI is required to have an ignition interlock on the first offense, and any subsequent offense, as a condition of a restricted license. Currently, the requirement for an interlock is only imposed upon a second offense or when the offender s BAC is above 0.15 percent on the first offense. (Source: For more information on ignition interlock, see article page 2 and visit Open Container Federally compliant open container laws prohibit the possession of any open alcoholic beverage in the passenger area of a motor vehicle. Virginia does not have a federally compliant open container law; currently Virginia legislation allows open containers of alcohol in the passenger areas of cars, making it very easy for a drinking driver to pass the alcohol to a passenger or put it in the backseat if stopped by law enforcement. Delegate Bob Purkey introduces an open container bill (Continues page 10)

9 Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving Celebrates 3rd Year On November 20th, MADD celebrated the 3rd anniversary of its Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving. Here is a progress report on the four elements of the Campaign: Support for High Visibility Law Enforcement. The launch for the nationwide holiday crackdown of Over the Limit, Under Arrest was December 14th. MADD successfully urged Congress to provide accompanying TV ads. We continue to advocate for sobriety checkpoints in all fifty states, and supports full funding for law enforcement budgets. MADD conducts Law Enforcement Recognition Ceremonies across the country to honor the extraordinary work of the men and women of law enforcement. Ignition Interlocks for all Convicted Drunk Drivers. Starting with one state in 2005 (New Mexico) there are now12 states with requirements for interlocks at.08 BAC. California has initiated a major pilot program covering four counties. Results from New Mexico and Arizona are very strong with fatality reductions of 35 percent and 33 percent respectively. See page 2 for more information on ignition interlocks. Voluntary Exploration of Advanced Technologies. The Automotive Coalition for Traffic Safety ( ACTS) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ( NHTSA) have entered into a cooperative research agreement to explore the feasibility, potential benefits of, and the public policy challenges associated with a more widespread use of in-vehicle technology to prevent alcohol-impaired driving. Aftermarket ignition interlocks have been used successfully among convicted drunk drivers to significantly reduce the incidence of impaired driving. However, deployment of the current technology on a more widespread basis as a preventative measure is not likely to occur because drivers are required to provide a breath sample each and every time before starting the vehicle. To be acceptable for use among the general public, including those who do not drink and drive, alcohol detection technologies must be far less intrusive they must not impede sober drivers from starting their vehicles. They would need to be capable of rapidly and accurately determining and measuring alcohol in the blood. They would also need to be small, reliable, durable, repeatable, maintenance free, and relatively inexpensive. The technical challenges in meeting these goals are substantial; however, the potential benefits to society are compelling. It has been estimated that almost 9,000 road traffic deaths could be prevented every year if alcohol detection devices were used in all vehicles to prevent alcohol-impaired drivers from driving their vehicles. To achieve these goals, a step-by-step, data-driven process will be followed to ensure that effective technologies are developed. Technological solutions can be effective only if the driving public who use the technologies understand and accept them. Only when technology meets the exacting standards described above and are coupled with public acceptance, will consideration be given to applying it more widely. (Source: dadss.org/) Three technology companies are now under contract to develop proof of concept devices that will unobtrusively and effectively detect when the driver is over the illegal limit of.08 BAC: Autoliv Development AB of Vårgårda, Sweden, is developing an in-vehicle alcohol detection system will measure alcohol from the exhaled breath of the driver; Alcohol Countermeasure Systems, Inc. of Toronto, Canada, is researching sensors that measure ethanol emanating from the driver by simultaneously measuring the concentration of alcohol and CO2 in the cabin air of the vehicle in the near proximity of the driver; and TruTouch Technologies, Inc. of Albuquerque, New Mexico, which is developing a prototype that uses near infrared (NIR) absorption spectroscopy to measure alcohol in skin tissue. Design Prototypes are expected to be available by summer Public Support. The elimination of drunk driving will only be achieved with the full support of the American public. Studies released by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the AAA Foundation in 2009 found public support for Ignition Interlocks in all vehicles in addition to those of people convicted of drunk driving.

10 CHECKPOINT STRIKEFORCE 2008 FACTS In 2008, 43-percent of Virginia s traffic fatalities (354) were alcohol related. This represents a six-percent decrease in the number of alcohol related traffic fatalities. The number of alcohol related traffic fatalities in 2008 is among the lowest in a decade in Virginia Nationally, alcohol related traffic fatalities at.08 BAC (blood alcohol concentration) or above decreased 9.7 percent From 13,041 in 2007 to 11,773 in In 2008, 25,758 persons were tested with BAC of.08 percent or higher in Virginia. Virginia in 2008, nearly 80-percent (79.36%) were male. State and/or local law enforcement agencies are planning to conduct one sobriety checkpoint/and/or saturation patrol every week throughout Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia, through the end of Checkpoint Strikeforce is a research-based, zero tolerance initiative within the Mid-Atlantic States designed to catch and arrest drunk drivers via sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols, as well as to educate the public about the dangers of drunk driving. Males between the ages of 21 and 35 are the primary target audience. This demographic group is typically harder to reach with public awareness campaigns and statistically at the highest risk of drunk driving. The grant is supported locally by a grant from the Virginia of Motor Vehicles Highway Safety. Law Enforcement Component Last year in Virginia there were over 1,429 sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols which resulted in 45,558 DUI arrests, averaging 125 arrests a day. Of those convicted for driving under the influence in Aggressively deployed sobriety checkpoints can result in a 20% reduction in alcohol related traffic fatalities. Sobriety Checkpoints are a highly targeted way to fight drunk driving; they are strategically timed and located where drunk driving is more likely to occur, making them amongst the most effective tool to stop drunk driving.

It provides that no person shall possess an alcoholic beverage in the passenger area of a motor vehicle upon a public highway of the Commonwealth in other than the manufacturer s unopened, original container. The bill punishes violators with a civil penalty of $25.Visit to learn how you can help him this year. Primary Seatbelt Law MADD is a proponent of primary seatbelt legislation. Seatbelts save lives and are your best defense in a drunk driving crash. For every percentage point the national seatbelt usage rate increases, an additional 280 lives are saved per year. Every state but New Hampshire requires its citizens to wear seatbelts. Unfortunately, over half of US states have secondary enforcement laws, meaning that a law enforcement officer has to pull someone over for a different violation and only then is able to write an additional citation for a seatbelt violation. Virginia has a secondary seatbelt law, and we need a primary seatbelt law. At the time of printing, we are not aware of any legislation for a primary seatbelt law.
