5.3% Of California Drivers Have At Least 1 DUI / Drunk Driving Conviction

September 25, 2009

According to the California Department of Motor Vehicles, 5.3% of all California drivers have one or more DUI / Drunk Driving convictions on their record from the period of 1997-2006.

This statistical conclusion is based on the requirement that DUI / Drunk Driving convictions stays on a driver’s record for 10 years. Up until a few years ago, 7 years was the length of time a DUI / Drunk Driving conviction stayed on a driver’s record.

However, there was a movement to maintain for life on a driver’s record all DUI / Drunk driving convictions.

A compromise was reached in the California legislature on 10 years in which a DUI / Drunk Driving conviction stays on a driver’s record for which the prior conviction can be alleged in a new DUI / Drunk Driving arrest.
