Wall Street Signals: Blow and Drive Interlock Congratulates Ohio on its Introduction of Annie’s Bill Into the Ohio State Legislature

Blow and Drive Interlock Congratulates Ohio on its Introduction of Annie’s Bill Into the Ohio State Legislature

Blow & Drive Interlock Corporation (OTC PINK: BDIC) (“BDI” or the “Company”) would like to take this time to thank the State of Ohio in their efforts to save lives with the introduction of Annie’s law into the Ohio State Legislature. Annie’s law targets first-time drunk drivers, giving them the option with a Judge’s consent to continue driving with an ignition interlock device, lest they lose their driver’s license for 12 months.
BDI is pleased that there are twenty-five states requiring the use of ignition interlock devices. With the potential addition of Ohio to those numbers the opportunity to protect drivers on the road is of tremendous importance nationally. In 2013, 10,076 people were killed in crashes caused by a drunk driver with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or greater, which does not speak to the numbers of people injured by drunk drivers. Additionally, Alisa’s law was reintroduced to the House of Representatives in September 2015 that will withhold, upon passage, Highway fund dollars from states that are “not enforcing a law requiring the installation of an ignition interlock device for a minimum of 180 days on each motor vehicle operated by an individual convicted of driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence.”
BDI is eager to see the results in Ohio with Annie’s law and at the Federal level with Alise’s law. It is the Company’s hope that ignition interlocks, such as the Company’s BDI-747 device will be required in all states, thereby reducing the number of injuries and fatalities on the road due to drunk driving offenders. Additionally, MADD has made an effort at the federal level with their ignition interlock campaign and recommends that “the mandatory installation of ignition interlocks in every state for every convicted drunk driving offender.  Interlocks must be installed for a minimum of six months for first‐time convicted offenders, and a minimum of one year for repeat offenders.”
BDI CEO Laurence Wainer states, “In Blow and Drive Interlock’s push to become a nationwide interlock company, we are eager for more states to adopt stricter laws requiring the devices. This will in turn lead to more lives saved and fewer families impacted by the injury or death of loved ones.”
