Get a License, Agree DUI can Kill

California DUI defense lawyer news

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a bill requiring everyone who gets a drivers license to sign a statement acknowledging DUI - driving under the influence can kill.

If a person who signs the statement does choose to drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs ( DUI ) and consequently kills somebody, the bill would allow prosecutors to prove they acted maliciously and not just recklessly.

"It's very unlikely we could ever prove that anyone paid attention to it and really realized it was there, read and reflected on it, so it would be a very limited value," said Kern County District Attorney Ed Jagels.
