Recent DUI Arrest Prompts Reintroduction Of Bills

Following the news about a man being arrested for drunk driving in Rhode Island twice on Valentine's Day, new DUI laws are being re-introduced. Two of the bills from state Senator Leo Raptakis would increase the penalties for those convicted of drunk driving resulting in death or serious injury and would increase from five to ten years the period during which prior DUI convictions qualify a person for increased penalties for subsequent convictions. The third bill would require the license plates of a vehicle to be confiscated if the owner is arrested for driving with a suspended license.
