In Illinois there is a new push to ease the rules for some repeat DUI offenders.

Under current law if you get four DUI’s you lose your license for life.

State Representative Elaine Nekritz, (D-Northbrook) wants to give those drivers a second chance.

A new bill would let them apply for a restricted driving permit five years after their last DUI conviction.

The driver would have to show evidence he or she has been sober at least three years. The bill is still in its early stages, but if it becomes law, offenders would also have a Breathalyzer installed in their car.
