Under existing law, when a person whose license is administratively suspended for having .08 or more by weight of alcohol in the blood is convicted of DUI, the person receives credit for administrative license suspension time served toward the conviction suspension. Also, the Alabama State Law Enforcement Agency is required to rescind the administrative suspension order and remove it from the driving record when the DUI charge is dismissed, nolle prossed, or if the person is acquitted
This bill would provide the same suspension credit and benefit of removal from the driving record to anyone whose license is suspended for having an amount of alcohol in the blood above the legal limit or refusing to submit to a chemical test under implied consent laws
To amend Section 32-5A-304, Code of Alabama 1975, relating to administrative driver license suspension; to provide suspension credit from any administrative license suspension served toward the suspension period under DUI conviction; and to require the Alabama State Law Enforcement Agency to rescind the administrative suspension order and remove it from the driving record when the DUI charge is dismissed, nolle prossed, or if the person is acquitted.
