AB 2058 (Chau) Vehicles: driving under the influence: statistics.

Status:Assembly Transportation Committee
Existing law requires the Department of Motor Vehicles to establish and maintain a data and monitoring system, as specified, to evaluate the efficacy of intervention programs for persons convicted of those violations relating to alcohol and drugs, and to report thereon annually to the Legislature.
This bill would require any law enforcement agency, as specified, to annually report to the Department of Motor Vehicles the number of arrests made for driving under the influence and the number of those arrests in which cannabis was suspected to be the substance, or one of the substances, of which the person was under the influence.
This bill would require the Department of Motor Vehicles to include that data in its annual report to the Legislature.
Because this bill would make new reporting requirements for local law enforcement agencies, it would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
