Bill description: SB 1388 would clarify that individuals who have had their driver’s license suspended due to an active DUI charge will have their driving privileges restored when the charges are vacated or dismissed.
Does it directly or indirectly create or increase penalties for victimless crimes or non-restorative penalties for non- violent crimes? Conversely, does it eliminate or decrease penalties for victimless crimes or non-restorative penalties for non-violent crimes?
SB 1388 is a clarification bill that ensures various sections of Idaho Code are aligned with each other. In current code, if someone's license is suspended for having driven under the influence of alcohol or another intoxicating substance, the suspension does not end even when the DUI charge is “vacated or dismissed.” SB 1388 would ensure that all “driving privileges shall be restored” to a person whose DUI charge has been vacated or dismissed.
