A federal safety board pushes for ignition locks for all drunk drivers. 

The recommendation from the National Transportation Safety Board comes after a review of “wrong-way” crashes.

The study shows nearly 70-percent of those accidents are caused by drunk drivers.

Seventeen states already require the devices for convicted drunk drivers, which measure alcohol concentration in a person’s breath before allowing them to operate the vehicle.

The NTSB is recommending them for all states, even for first-time offenders.
