New California Law to Allow Restricted License for Second DUI Draws Criticism

The new law going into affect in July 2010 allows for second time DUI offenders to get a restricted license after serving just 90 days of a suspension. This new law is a far cry from the old law which mandated a minimum one year suspension before a restriction could be granted. The new ignition interlock restriction still has many in an uproar, particularly MADD proponents and those seeking to turn multiple DUI offenders into felons. Time will tell whether their will be a turnabout on the granting of early license reinstatement in the golden state.
