Penalties For Driving Under Restraint

Concerning the penalties for driving under restraint when the license is restrained for reasons other than an alcohol-related offense.
Session:
2020 Regular Session
Subjects:
Crimes, Corrections, & Enforcement
Transportation & Motor Vehicles
Bill Summary

Under existing law, the penalty for driving while a person's license or privilege to drive is under restraint includes that the person may not be issued a license or granted any driving privileges for a period of time beyond the initial restraint. This penalty is in addition to a sentence to the county jail or fines that may be imposed as a penalty for driving under restraint.

The bill removes the penalty restricting a person's driving privileges beyond the initial restraint when the initial restraint is for reasons other than an alcohol-related offense.

Under existing law, the department of revenue is required to immediately revoke an habitual offender's driver's license. The bill removes this revocation requirement when a person is an habitual offender solely because of convictions for driving under restraint when the restraint is for reasons other than an alcohol-related offense.
