A bill that will substantially strengthen Kentucky’s DUI laws passes the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Senator Ray Jones proposed the bill because the number of arrests for “driving under the influence of a controlled substance” are rapidly increasing and may soon surpass alcohol-related DUI's.
Senate Bill 67 will establish an offense for driving with any controlled substance in a person’s system, including prescription and illegal drugs. However, if the person driving has a valid prescription and is in compliance with the designated dosage, they will not be charged.
