Bernalillo County Sheriff's deputies can seize a repeat drunk driver's car beginning Thursday.

The new law, which took effect at 12:01 a.m. Thursday, impacts people who have been convicted of DWI before.

It also affects anyone whose drivers license has been revoked or suspended due to an arrest or DWI conviction.

We're told no one has become the first person to have their car seized. 

The City of Albuquerque already has a similar law in place.
