On Monday, the California General Assembly passed legislation calling for increased penalties for those convicted of multiple CA DUI offenses. Bill AB1601 gives authority to the courts to revoke a driver’s license for ten years when the offender has been convicted of three or more times for drunk driving within ten years.
Under current California drunk driving laws, a motorist can lose his/her license for two to five years.
The bill has been passed by the Assembly and now goes to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s desk for consideration.
