V C Section 16076 Restriction Alternative Notification

Restriction Alternative: Notification

16076.  (a) The department shall notify every person whose driving privilege is suspended, pursuant to Section 16070, of that person's right to apply for a restricted driving privilege authorized under Section 16072.

(b) For purposes of subdivision (a), the department shall prepare and publish a printed summary. The printed summary may contain, but is not limited to, the following wording:

"If your driving privilege is suspended due to involvement in an accident while you were uninsured, you may apply for a restricted license at any office of the Department of Motor Vehicles, accompanied with proof of financial responsibility, payment of a penalty fee of two hundred fifty dollars ($250), and, unless already paid, payment of a reissuance fee.

The Mello-McAlister Restricted Employment Driving Privilege Act allows you to apply for a driver's license limiting you to driving to and from work, and during the course of your primary employment, during the one-year mandatory term of suspension. The restricted license will not be issued if any other suspension or revocation action has been taken against your driving privilege."

(c) This section shall be known and may be cited as the Mello-McAlister Restricted Employment Driving Privilege Act.

Amended Sec. 19, Ch. 451, Stats. 2003. Effective January 1, 2004.
