HB 1666 -- Intoxication-Related Traffic Arrests
Sponsor: Fischer (107)
This bill establishes Cary's Law which requires all
intoxication-related traffic arrests by state and local law
enforcement agencies and any action taken by the prosecutor
subsequent to an arrest for an intoxication-related traffic
offense to be entered into the State Highway Patrol's DWI
Tracking System (DWITS) within 30 days of the arrest or action.
The patrol must report to the Department of Public Safety and the
Governor any agency that fails to submit the required
information. The Governor may withhold state funds to any
agency, prosecuting or circuit attorney's office, or municipality
that prosecutes municipal ordinance violations and fails to
comply with the provisions of the bill.
The bill becomes effective January 1, 2011.
