Governor Dalrymple Signs DUI Bill
Drunk driving penalties in North Dakota got a lot stiffer on Tuesday, after Governor Dalrymple signed Bill 1302 into law.
Here's how the bill shakes out: Fines for a DUI conviction will increase, as will jail time for second and subsequent offenses. .First and second DUI offenses are now a Class B misdemeanor, while a third offense is a Class A. Plus, those convicted of a second DUI will also be required to enroll in a 24/7 sobriety program.
There is also a vehicular homicide provision, which includes a mandatory three-year sentence for the first offense.
