A legislative committee in America has passed a bill that will allow judges to impose prison sentences for repeat offenders who drink and drive.
Those that have offended between seven and nine times will receive a three year prison sentence and those that have offended 10 times or more will receive a minimum of four years behind bars.
The changes come after current laws leave judges to use their discretion whether or not to impose a jail sentence.
Judges will now also have to impose a mandatory 30 day jail sentence to any driver who is over the drink drive limit and causes an injury.
