Governor Taft has signed a bill that give speeding drivers a better chance of keeping their licenses. The legislation removes previous violations as a factor in determining points against a driver's license. For example, a person going 85 miles an hour in a 65 zone would receive two points against his license, whether it was a violation for the first time or the fourth time. The bill also lessens the penalty for those convicted of being under the influence of alcohol in a parked car. Instead of a three-day jail sentence or license suspention, they will face a possible fine and court costs. The new law takes effect January first.
