Kinnard says the state needs stricter penalties so drivers think twice about getting behind the wheel after drinking.

MADD is calling on lawmakers to allow police to run sobriety checkpoints.

The group also wants to require ignition interlock devices to be installed in cars after a person is convicted of an OWI.
