Why this date? What is significant about that date? It was the date that “Annie’s Law” became effective. It brought important changes to Ohio’s drunk driving statutes. Under Ohio law, drunk driving is referred to as Operating a Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated, or more commonly known as OVI.
Under Annie’s Law, the “look-back” period is now 10 years instead of the previous 6. For drivers who are convicted of a second OVI within 10 years of their first, this means that their punishment is now greatly enhanced. Also, inherent in “Annie’s Law” is its major emphasis on the use of ignition interlock devices.
