This arrest comes on the heels of newly signed legislation by Governor Schwarzenegger to crack down on DUI offenders. There were five bills signed to strengthen DWI laws and prevent drunk driving in Orange County and all other California counties. Starting January 1, 2009, AB 1165, one of the new bills signed will make it unlawful for any person on probation for a DUI conviction to drive or operate a motor vehicle with a BAC of .01% or greater. These new bills were designed to prevent minors from obtaining any alcohol and provide tools for law enforcement agencies and prosecutors to hammer those convicted of driving while intoxicated.
