New traffic laws for 2010 that will affect California motorists, are now in effect.
CHP Officer Mike Remmel was Thursday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
AB 91 requires that first time D.U.I. offenders have a breathalyzer installed in their vehicle for five months. If alcohol is detected when blowing, the car will not start. During the first six months of 2010, the law will be tested out in the counties of Alameda, Los Angeles, Sacramento and Tulare. Beginning on July 1st, it will take effect statewide.
SB 159 mandates that freeway drivers move to the inside lane if an emergency vehicle or tow truck is parked along the side of the road with emergency lights turned on. If this is not able to be done in a safe manner, the driver must then slow down to a reasonable and prudent speed.
The Newsmaker of the Day is heard each weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:47, 7:47 and 8:47am.
