"Several traffic deaths occur in Alaska every year when a driver causes the death of another by poor driving and the only consequence is a small fine."
- Sen. Ogan

 

"An Act relating to disposition of a traffic offense involving the death of a person; providing for the revocation of driving privileges by a court for a driver convicted of a violation of traffic laws in connection with a fatal motor vehicle or commercial motor vehicle accident; amending Rules 43 and 43.1, Alaska Rules of Administration; and providing for an effective date."

The bill allows a court to revoke the driving privileges of a driver who violates the traffic laws, and the violation contributes to an automobile accident that results in a death. Drivers who violate traffic laws may not have committed a crime, but if their poor driving causes the death of another person, their driving privileges should be revoked. Several traffic deaths occur in Alaska every year when a driver causes the death of another by poor driving and the only consequence is a small fine. This is very difficult for the families of the victims. Under these circumstances, Senate Bill 53 provides revocation of driving privileges for a period of up to three years. This period would be concurrent with any other revocation that might apply, and the court may grant a limited license if the court finds the limited license will not endanger the public.
