The Oregon laws for drunk driving have a "get out of jail free" card for first time offenders. They can go through diversion. Ann Pratt with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD): “In Oregon there are approximately 25,000 DUII arrests. It’s estimated that there are 11,000 that result in diversion, creating a loophole where an offender is free of an interlock requirement.” A new bill would close that loophole and require all those convicted of drunk driving to install an ignition interlock on their vehicle.
