ATLANTA (AP) - People convicted of drunk driving who stay out of serious motor vehicle trouble for five years could have their records wiped clean under a bill proposed in Georgia.
Rep. Culver "Rusty" Kidd has sponsored legislation allowing people to erase a conviction for drunk driving if they do not commit another motor vehicle offense that would put penalty points on their license for five years after their conviction.
The bill has not yet been heard by a committee.
Kidd is an independent from Milledgeville. He did not return a call seeking comment.
