Coded Law File

Law File Changes- January 2003

DWI Legislation: In the last quarter of 2002, the legislature passed, and the Governor signed, a bill which will reduce the BAC required for driving while intoxicated, per se, to be reduced from .10 to .08. The effective date on the bill that was signed is November 1, 2003. DCJS has been informed that the legislature intends to change the effective date during the new session, probably to March 1, 2003. Due to the uncertainty on the effective date, the current file has NOT been changed to include the new DWI law. If the effective date is changed to March, a new posting will be done in February which will include the necessary additions, as well as repeal dates for the existing DWI laws which are affected.

Eticket Project Participants: Changes were made to many Vehicle & Traffic laws which resulted in certain DMV_VTCODE changes, as follows:
1116D is now associated to new ordinal 6849
4017E2 is now associated to new ordinal 6850- ordinal 6644 is now invalid
4017FB is now associated to new ordinal 6851- ordinal 6645 is now invalid
37520E is now associated to new ordinal 6852
1180BJ is now associated to new ordinal 6853- ordinal 6396 is now invalid
1180CJ is now associated to new ordinal 6854- ordinal 6399 is now invalid
1180DJ is now associated to new ordinal 6855- ordinal 6437 is now invalid
1180GA is now associated to new ordinal 6856- ordinal 6440 is now invalid
3761A is now associated to new ordinal 6857- ordinal 5668 is now invalid
5111A is now associated to new ordinal 6858

Note: Laws added to the file since the last posting in November, 2002 begin with relative address/law ordinal 6842. Be aware, however, that changes may have been made to existing ordinals. If possible, you should completely overwrite the existing law file with the new one.
