Some repeat drunk drivers may catch a break under provisions of a bill recently passed by Illinois lawmakers.  Four-time DUI offenders usually lose their license for good, but this legislation lets those who meet certain requirements apply for a restricted driving permit.

It's sponsored by Senator John Mulroe of Chicago.

To be eligible for the restricted permit, a person could not have any driving infractions for the past five years, and must prove they have been sober for three years.  Their car must also be equipped with a breath alcohol device.  The measure awaits the governor's signature.
