DUI record could be erased under proposed law

Georgians convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol could get their record erased if they go for five years without a driving infraction of any sort, under a proposed law.
Rep. Rusty Kidd, R-Milledgeville, said that some people who make the mistake of driving drunk once have to live with a lifetime of problems, such as being disqualified from jobs or scholarships.
“If you have a DUI it never comes off your record,” Kidd said.
His House Bill 799 will give people “who keep their nose clean for five years” a second chance, he said.
Blogger’s Note: Interesting to see if this passes and avoids a gubernatorial veto. After all, no politician wants to be seen as soft of drinking and driving. In my opinion, I can see this record cleaning applied in select cases. Perhaps it would make sense with a DUI less safe offense.
