New traffic rules in effect

They set conditions for revocation of driver’s license

— The Department of Public Safety is warning motorists of new restrictions concerning traffic laws, a media release states.

House Bill 1507 took effect Nov. 1, 2011. It calls for a mandatory one-year driver’s license revocation for any licensee convicted of the following traffic offenses:

• Reckless driving without regard to the safety of others.

• Failure to stop for a school bus loading or unloading children.

• Failure to obey a traffic control device (or stop for stop sign) when such failure results in great bodily injury to any other person.

DPS sends a 30-day notice of license revocation to the last known address of the licensee.

Therefore, it is imperative that licensees comply with a state statute that says whenever a licensee changes their residence address which is displayed on the license they shall, within 10 days, notify the Deppartment of Public Safety in writing of the old and new mailing address and both the old and new residence address.
