HOLBROOK AND MCKEON.
VEH CD-DRUNK DRIVING PENALTIES
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code to change certain provisions
dealing with driving while under the influence. Changes the penalties
and period of suspension of driving privileges by basing these on the
person's alcohol concentration level. Provides that the period of
suspension is 270 days (instead of 6 months) and if not a first
offender, 2 and one-half years (instead of 2 years) for refusing or
failing to complete an alcohol or drug concentration test. Provides
that a first offender may be issued a restricted driving permit. Adds
the requirement that a breath alcohol interlock ignition device be
installed in a person's vehicle if a person with a second or
subsequent violation for driving while under the influence is issued a
restricted driving permit. Provides that a person convicted for
driving while under the influence shall be subject to fines. Provides
that a first offender shall be subject to community service.
Increases the fine and hours of community service for when the offense
was committed while transporting a person 16 years of age or younger
(instead of under 16). Adds that after a person is found guilty of
driving while under the influence, that person shall be required to
complete an approved alcohol or drug education course. Makes other
changes. Effective January 1, 1998.
There will be no fiscal or corrections population impact.
