The Legislature finds that driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs continues
to be a primary safety issue on the state's highways, and the major cause of traffic
deaths. It is imperative that violators who drive while under the influence of alcohol or
drugs be fully prosecuted under the law. The Legislature also finds that too often violators have not had their driving records
at the Department of Motor Vehicles appropriately updated. Therefore, it is the intent of the Legislature that the department, working with
the courts, establish and maintain a data and monitoring system to track violations
of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, including, but not limited to,
violations of Article 1.3 (commencing with Section 23136), Article 1.5 (commencing with Section 23140), and Article 2 (commencing with Section 23152), of Chapter 12 of Division 11. The system shall match arrests for driving under the influence of alcohol or drug
violations with convictions reported to the department.
