MINORS. DRIVING AND ALCOHOL. INITIATIVE STATUTE. This measure would make it unlawful for persons under the age of 21 years to drive with any amount of alcohol in their blood and permits the immediate suspension of the drivers' license of persons under the age of 21 years for such activity. Prohibition remains in effect for minors who drive with alcohol in their blood and cause injury even if it is determined that federal regulations do not require restrictions, as specified. Severability clause. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: Measure would result in annual unknown increased costs, potentially in the millions, for Department of California Highway Patrol and local law enforcement agencies resulting from enforcing new standards, making additional arrests, and incarcerating those arrested. It would also create annual processing costs potentially up to $1 million, for the Department of Motor Vehicles, which may be offset by fees paid by individuals whose licenses are reinstated. Further, additional court filings from the increase in DUI arrests would result in additional annual costs, potentially of several million dollars, which would be shared by the state General Fund and local funds, that would be partially offset by fines and penalties imposed by the courts.
