SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Repeat D-U-I offenders would have no room for missteps under a bill passed by the Utah Senate.

The bill would impose a two-year driver's license restriction on repeat offenders, which would not allow them to drive with any measurable amount of liquor in their system.

A five-year restriction would be imposed on repeat offenders who refuse to take a chemical, or blood-alcohol content test when stopped by police.

The bill now goes to the House.
