California Considering Revoking Driver's Licenses Of Repeat DUI / Drunk Driving Offenders

Nov 13, 2009 @ 09:56 AM — by Myles L. Berman

As a result of a northern California man having numerous lifetime DUI / Drunk Driving convictions prior to his most recent arrest, a northen California State Senator is proposing legislation to have the driver's license revoked after a person is convicted of multiple DUI / Drunk Driving convictions. In California, the law used to consider prior DUI / Drunk Driving convictions within 5 years of a current offense to be considered a prior. Subsequently, the law was changed to 7 years. A few years ago, there was a movement to change the law to consider all prior DUI / Drunk Driving convictions in a person's lifetime to be considered a prior. However, there was a compromise in the California legislature which resulted in the law being changed again to what is currently a 10 year widow for prior DUI / Drunk Driving convictions to be considered a prior in a current DUI / Drunk Drivng charge.
