The Senate Judiciary Committee has delayed a vote on a measure that would let convicted drunken drivers in New Jersey to get restricted driving permits for work-related purposes.

The committee was slated to vote on the legislation Thursday. But lawmakers determined it needs more consideration, saying amendments are likely.

Under the bill, permit-holders would only be allowed to drive during certain hours and between certain points. They could drive only to and from their job or to pursue employment, and also would have to display a sign on their vehicle reading “restricted use vehicle.”

Permit-holders also would have to use an ignition interlock device, which requires a breath test before the vehicle can be started and at random times while driving.
