COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — More drunken driving offenders could be required to have devices installed on their vehicles to test their sobriety under an Ohio bill.

The proposal would require the ignition interlock devices for offenders if a judge grants them driving privileges during their license suspensions.

The devices require drivers to blow into a sensor. They would prevent vehicles from starting if a certain amount of alcohol is detected. The systems cost about $80 to $100, which the offender would pay.

Macomb County farmer John Rhein of Lenox Township says he went from roughly 400 to 350 acres of corn. He says the corn he planted is progressing well in the recent warm weather.
