VEHICLE SANCTIONS FOR REPEAT DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED OFFENDERS: FACTORS THAT FACILITATE OR IMPEDE THEIR ADOPTION OR IMPLEMENTATION

Vehicle sanctions for driving while intoxicated (DWI) offenders, when applied, consistently show a significant reduction in recidivism among the population that experienced the sanction (DeYoung, 2002). This paper examines some of the factors that impede, reduce, or are barriers to a greater or wider level of implementation of effective vehicle sanctions. Most states have at least one form of a vehicle sanction applicable to DWI offenders. These include vehicle impoundment, vehicle forfeiture, plate and registration impoundment, vehicle immobilization, and ignition interlocks. Yet in many of those jurisdictions the sanction is not applied, is applied at a low level, or, while applied broadly, is limited in actual application because of legal, practical, or policy obstacles.
