(KTVI) - Members of "Mothers Against Drunk Driving" take their latest safety push to Jefferson City, were they'll urge lawmakers to pass a law requiring all convicted drunk drivers to use an ignition interlock device.  Interlock device on installed in cars of persons convicted require an onboard breathalyzer test before the car will start.
