New DUI Laws in California - Ignition Inerlock Mandatory

AB 91, Feuer. Vehicles: driving under the influence (DUI):
ignition interlock device.

(1) Existing law requires all manufacturers of ignition interlock
devices that meet specified requirements and are certified in a
manner approved by the Department of Motor Vehicles, that intend to
market the devices in this state, to first apply to the department on
forms provided by the department and to pay an accompanying fee in
an amount not to exceed the amount necessary to cover the costs
incurred by the department in carrying out those provisions.
This bill would require a manufacturer and a manufacturer's agent,
certified by the department to provide ignition interlock devices,
to provide each year to the department information on the number of
false positives and the time to reset the device. The bill would also
require the department to use this information in evaluating the
continued certification of an ignition interlock device.
(2) Existing law requires a person's privilege to operate a motor
vehicle to be suspended or revoked for a specified period of time if
the person has been convicted of violating specified provisions
prohibiting driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of an
alcoholic beverage or drug or the combined influence of an alcoholic
beverage and drug, or with 0.08% or more, by weight, of alcohol in
his or her blood or while addicted to the use of any drug, with or
without bodily injury to another. Existing law also authorizes a
person whose privilege is suspended or revoked in that manner to
receive a restricted driver's license if specified requirements are
met, including, in some instances, the installation of an ignition
interlock device on the person's vehicle.
This bill would require the department to establish a pilot
program from July 1, 2010, to January 1, 2016, in the Counties of
Alameda, Los Angeles, Sacramento, and Tulare that requires, as a
condition of being issued a restricted driver's license, being
reissued a driver's license, or having the privilege to operate a
motor vehicle reinstated subsequent to a conviction for a violation
of the above offenses, a person to install for a specified period of
time an ignition interlock device on all vehicles he or she owns or
operates, except as provided. The amount of time the ignition
interlock device would be required to be installed would be based
upon the number of convictions, as prescribed. The bill would
prohibit the implementation of the pilot program if the department
fails to obtain, by January 31, 2010, nonstate funds for the
programming costs of the pilot program.
The bill would set up a statutory scheme under which the
department would, with regard to the installation of an ignition
interlock device described above, notify the person of the ignition
interlock device installation requirements established under the
bill, accept notification from the installer of the ignition
interlock device of attempts to remove, bypass, or tamper with the
ignition interlock device or if the person fails 3 or more times to
comply with the maintenance requirements, monitor the installation
and maintenance of the ignition interlock device, and keep specified
records.
The bill would also require that manufacturers and manufacturer's
agents, certified by the department to provide ignition interlock
devices, adopt a fee schedule for payment of the costs of the
ignition interlock device based on the offender's ability to pay, and
would require the court to adopt a similar fee schedule with regard
to the fees for the county alcohol and drug problem assessment
program.
On or before January 1, 2015, the department would be required to
report to the Legislature regarding the effectiveness of the pilot
program in reducing the number of first-time driving under the
influence violations and repeat offenses in those counties.
(3) This bill would require that it become operative only if SB
598 of the 2009-10 Regular Session becomes operative on or before
January 1, 2010.
(4) Because it is a crime to operate a vehicle that is not
equipped with a functioning, certified ignition interlock device by a
person whose driving privilege is so restricted, the bill would
impose a state-mandated local program by expanding the scope of that
crime.
(5) The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse
local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the
state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that
reimbursement.
This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this
act for a specified reason.


THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

SECTION 1. Section 13386 of the Vehicle Code is amended to read:

Vehicle Code, relating to vehicles.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST




SB 598, Huff. Vehicles: driving under the influence (DUI).
(1) Existing law requires a person's privilege to operate a motor
vehicle to be suspended or revoked for a specified period of time if
the person has been convicted of violating specified provisions
prohibiting driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of an
alcoholic beverage or drug, or the combined influence of an alcoholic
beverage and drug, or with 0.08% or more, by weight, of alcohol in
his or her blood, or who is addicted to the use of any drug. Existing
law authorizes a person whose privilege is suspended or revoked in
that manner to receive a restricted driver's license if specified
requirements are met, including, in some instances, the installation
of a certified ignition interlock device on the person's vehicle.
Existing law requires that a person, convicted of driving under
the influence, without bodily injury to another, within 10 years of
being convicted of a separate violation of one of specified
driving-under-the-influence offenses, be punished by his or her
driving privilege being suspended for 2 years. The Department of
Motor Vehicles is required to advise the person that he or she may
apply for a restricted driver's license after completion of 12 months
of the suspension period, which may include credit for a specified
concurrent suspension, subject to certain conditions, including,
among other things, submitting proof of installation of a certified
ignition interlock device, agreeing to maintain the ignition
interlock device, and paying certain fees, including, but not limited
to, all administrative fees or reissue fees.
This bill would instead require the department to advise a person,
who was only under the influence of an alcoholic beverage at the
time of the violation, that he or she may apply for a restricted
driver's license after completion of 90 days of the suspension
period, under certain circumstances.
(2) Existing law requires that a person convicted of driving under
the influence, without bodily injury to another, within 10 years of
being convicted of 2 separate violations of specified
driving-under-the-influence offenses, be punished by his or her
driving privilege being revoked for 3 years. The department is
required to advise the person that he or she may apply for a
restricted driver's license after completion of 12 months of the
revocation period, which may include credit for a specified
concurrent suspension, subject to certain conditions, including,
among other things, satisfactory completion of 12 months of an
18-month or 30-month driving-under-the-influence program, submitting
proof of installation of a certified ignition interlock device,
agreeing to maintain the ignition interlock device, and paying
certain fees.
This bill would instead require the department to advise a person,
who was found to be only under the influence of an alcoholic
beverage at the time of the violation, of his or her ability to apply
for a restricted driver's license after completion of 6 months of
the revocation period, subject to certain conditions, including that
if the person is convicted of a specified offense that person
subsequently satisfactorily provides proof of enrollment in an
18-month or 30-month driving-under-the-influence program, as
prescribed. The bill would require the person to pay a fee sufficient
to cover the costs of administration, as determined by the
department.
(3) This bill would require that a person convicted of driving
under the influence of any drug or the combined influence of any drug
and an alcoholic beverage, without bodily injury to another, within
10 years of being convicted of a separate violation of one of the
specified driving-under-the-influence offenses, be punished by his or
her driving privilege being revoked for 2 years. This bill would
authorize the department to reinstate the privilege provided certain
conditions are met. This bill would require the department to advise
the person that he or she may apply for a restricted driver's license
after completion of 12 months of the suspended period, subject to
certain conditions including, among other things, that the person
provides proof of enrollment in an 18-month or 30-month
driving-under-the-influence program, as prescribed.
(4) This bill would also require a person convicted of driving
under the influence of any drug or the combined influence of any drug
and an alcoholic beverage, without bodily injury to another, within
10 years of being convicted of 2 separate violations of specified
driving-under-the-influence offenses, be punished by his or her
driving privilege being revoked for 3 years. This bill would
authorize the department to reinstate the privilege provided certain
conditions are met. This bill would require the department to advise
the person that he or she may apply for a restricted driver's license
after completion of 12 months of the suspended period, subject to
certain conditions, including, among other things, that the person
has satisfactorily completed the initial 12 months of an 18-month or
30-month driving-under-the-influence program as prescribed.
(5) This bill would make other conforming changes.
(6) This bill would become operative on July 1, 2010.

that the person be confined in the county jail for at least 30 days
but not more than one year. The court shall not order the treatment

request and shows good cause for the order, whether or not the person
has previously completed a treatment program pursuant to subdivision

mandatory license revocation provisions of paragraph (9) of
subdivision (a) of Section 13352.
(c) In addition to Section 23600 and subdivision (a), if the court

a condition of probation that the person, subsequent to the date of
the current violation, enroll in and participate, for at least 18
months and in a manner satisfactory to the court, in a
driving-under-the-influence program licensed pursuant to Section
11836 of the Health and Safety Code, as designated by the court. The

be given any credit for program activities completed prior to, the
date of the current violation. A person who has previously completed
a 12-month or 18-month driving-under-the-influence program licensed
pursuant to Section 11836 of the Health and Safety Code shall not be
eligible for referral pursuant to this subdivision unless a 30-month
driving-under-the-influence program licensed pursuant to Section
11836 of the Health and Safety Code is not available for referral in
the county of the person's residence or employment. A condition of
probation required pursuant to this subdivision is not a basis for
reducing any other probation requirement in this section or Section
23600 or for avoiding the mandatory license revocation provisions of
paragraph (9) of subdivision (a) of Section 13352.
(d) The court shall advise the person at the time of sentencing
that the driving privilege may not be restored until the person
provides proof satisfactory to the department of successful

required under this code that is licensed pursuant to Section 11836
of the Health and Safety Code.

violations, that resulted in convictions, that person shall be
punished by imprisonment in the state prison for a term of two,
three, or four years and by a fine of not less than one thousand
fifteen dollars ($1,015) nor more than five thousand dollars
($5,000). The person's privilege to operate a motor vehicle shall be

of subdivision (a) of Section 13352. The court shall require the
person to surrender the driver's license to the court in accordance
with Section 13550.
(b) If a person is convicted of a violation of Section 23153, and
the act or neglect proximately causes great bodily injury, as defined
in Section 12022.7 of the Penal Code, to any person other than the
driver, and the offense occurred within 10 years of two or more
separate violations of Section 23103, as specified in Section
23103.5, or Section 23152 or 23153, or any combination of these
violations, that resulted in convictions, that person shall be
punished by imprisonment in the state prison for a term of two,
three, or four years and by a fine of not less than one thousand
fifteen dollars ($1,015) nor more than five thousand dollars

these violations, that resulted in convictions, that person shall, in
addition and consecutive to the sentences imposed under subdivision
(b), be punished by an additional term of imprisonment in the state
prison for three years.
The enhancement allegation provided in this subdivision shall be
pleaded and proved as provided by law.
(d) A person convicted of Section 23153 punishable under this
section shall be designated as a habitual traffic offender for a
period of three years, subsequent to the conviction. The person shall
be advised of this designation pursuant to subdivision (b) of
Section 13350.
(e) A person confined in state prison under this section shall be
ordered by the court to participate in an alcohol or drug program, or
both, that is available at the prison during the person's
confinement. Completion of an alcohol or drug program under this
section does not meet the program completion requirement of paragraph
(8) of subdivision (a) of Section 13352, unless the drug or alcohol
program is licensed under Section 11836 of the Health and Safety
Code, or is a program specified in Section 8001 of the Penal Code.
SEC. 8. Section 23568 of the Vehicle Code is amended to read:
23568. (a) If the court grants probation to a person punished
under Section 23566, in addition to the provisions of Section 23600
and any other terms and conditions imposed by the court, the court

in a manner satisfactory to the court, an 18-month
driving-under-the-influence program licensed pursuant to Section
11836 of the Health and Safety Code or, if available in the county of
the person's residence or employment, a 30-month
driving-under-the-influence program licensed pursuant to Section
11836 of the Health and Safety Code, as designated by the court. The
person shall complete the entire program subsequent to, and shall not
be given any credit for program activities completed prior to, the
date of the current violation. In lieu of the minimum term of
imprisonment in subdivision (a), the court shall impose as a minimum
condition of probation under this subdivision that the person be
