Several new laws designed to help strengthen existing DUI laws
January 4, 2009 (Sacramento) — With a new year on the
horizon, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) wants to remind motorists of a
handful of new laws, passed by the Legislature and signed by Governor Schwarzenegger,
that go into effect in 2009.
"The overall safety of the motoring public is our primary concern," says
CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. "Not only will these new laws enhance a motorist's
safety, many of them are a step toward ridding the roadways of drunk drivers
and the tragedy they cause."
