Interstate Driver License Compact

The Interstate Driver License Compact is an agreement between 45 member states to exchange arrest information for certain traffic violations, including DUI.  For example, if you are arrested in Ohio for DUI, Ohio will inform your home state.  Your home state may take no action, immediate action or treat the offense as if it occurred in your home state for licensure purposes.  The intended goal of the Compact was to prevent the occurrence of multiple driving records that were “hidden” from other states.  Currently there are five states that are...

Drunk Driving Checkpoints are Not Effective

Image by peterkellystudios via FlickrThe American Beverage Institute is an industry-sponsored advocacy group that has stood up to Mother Against Drunk Drivers and their campaing for roadside checkpoints. The beverage group says that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) should back off from the roadblocks and instead support roving patrols to catch heavy drinkers. "By promoting sobriety checkpoints, MADD and NHTSA are ignoring the root cause of today's drunk driving problem - hard core alcohol abusers,'' ABI managing director Sarah Longwell said in a statement."Because they are highly visible by design and publicized in advance,...

Ohio Contemplates Photo Enforced Speeding Tickets

Image by dotsi via FlickrOhio state House votes to use speed cameras to issue $250 -$300 tickets to freeway drivers. Ohio  passed sweeping legislation that would impose new penalties on motorists, including a statewide speed camera program. State Representative Peter S. Ujvagi (D-Toledo) inserted the controversial proposals into a "must pass" $7.6 billion transportation funding measure to avoid individual discussion of the merits of the many programs rolled into the 361-page bill. Anyone failing to pay the $250 ticket  will have his license suspended, or, in the case of out-of-state drivers, be banned from operating a motor...

Ohio Seat Belt Law May Change

Image via WikipediaThere is a provision in the Ohio Budget Bill (HB 2), Ohio's massive traffic law overhaul, that would change the current Ohio seat belt law from secondary enforcement to primary enforcement. This means that drivers can be pulled over for not wearing a seat belt without another violation being committed. This is a betrayal of promises made by the Ohio legislature which assured motorists that the law was only going to be enforced as a secondary law when the law was being considered for passage. Contact your representatives and let them know you do not support this law.Contact Info: http://www.legislature.state.oh.us/search.cfm#reps_zipView House Budget...
