Requires a court that orders installation of an ignition interlock device to notify the bureau of motor vehicles (BMV), and requires the BMV to record this requirement in the person's driving record. Provides that certain out of state convictions may be used as a basis to enhance the penalty for OWI causing serious bodily injury and OWI causing death. Provides that a license suspension for certain controlled substance convictions may be ordered only if the controlled substance conviction involved the use of a motor vehicle.
