New driving law starting today

There are a few more in effect today but I thought some people would be intrested to know this one.

House Bill 586 means a ticket for speeding more than 95 miles per hour can't be dismissed with a driving-safety class.

Not an unreasonable statute.

http://www.capitol.state.tx.us/tlodo...l/HB00586F.htm


AN ACT
relating to eligibility for dismissal of certain speeding charges
on completion of a driving safety course.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS:
SECTION 1. Articles 45.0511(b) and (c), Code of Criminal
Procedure, are amended to read as follows:
(b) The judge shall require the defendant to successfully
complete a driving safety course approved by the Texas Education
Agency or a course under the motorcycle operator training and
safety program approved by the designated state agency under
Chapter 662, Transportation Code, if:
(1) the defendant elects driving safety course or
motorcycle operator training course dismissal under this article;
(2) the defendant:
(A) has not completed an approved driving safety
course or motorcycle operator training course, as appropriate,
within the 12 months preceding the date of the offense; or
(B) does not have a valid Texas driver's license
or permit, is a member, or the spouse or dependent child of a
member, of the United States military forces serving on active
duty, and has not completed a driving safety course or motorcycle
operator training course, as appropriate, in another state within
the 12 months preceding the date of the offense;
(3) the defendant enters a plea under Article 45.021
in person or in writing of no contest or guilty on or before the
answer date on the notice to appear and:
(A) presents in person or by counsel to the court
a request to take a course; or
(B) sends to the court by certified mail, return
receipt requested, postmarked on or before the answer date on the
notice to appear, a written request to take a course;
(4) the defendant:
(A) has a valid Texas driver's license or permit;
or
(B) is a member, or the spouse or dependent child
of a member, of the United States military forces serving on active
duty;
(5) the defendant is charged with an offense to which
this article applies, other than speeding at a speed of:
(A) 95 miles per hour or more; or
(B) 25 miles per hour or more over the posted
speed limit; and
(6) the defendant provides evidence of financial
responsibility as required by Chapter 601, Transportation Code.
(c) The court shall enter judgment on the defendant's plea
of no contest or guilty at the time the plea is made, defer
imposition of the judgment, and allow the defendant 90 days to
successfully complete the approved driving safety course or
motorcycle operator training course and present to the court:
(1) a uniform certificate of completion of the driving
safety course or a verification of completion of the motorcycle
operator training course;
(2) unless the judge proceeds under Subsection (c-1),
the defendant's driving record as maintained by the Department of
Public Safety, if any, showing that the defendant had not completed
an approved driving safety course or motorcycle operator training
course, as applicable, within the 12 months preceding the date of
the offense;
(3) an affidavit stating that the defendant was not
taking a driving safety course or motorcycle operator training
course, as applicable, under this article on the date the request to
take the course was made and had not completed such a course that is
not shown on the defendant's driving record within the 12 months
preceding the date of the offense; and
(4) if the defendant does not have a valid Texas
driver's license or permit and is a member, or the spouse or
dependent child of a member, of the United States military forces
serving on active duty, an affidavit stating that the defendant was
not taking a driving safety course or motorcycle operator training
course, as appropriate, in another state on the date the request to
take the course was made and had not completed such a course within
the 12 months preceding the date of the offense.
SECTION 2. (a) The change in law made by this Act applies
only to an offense committed on or after the effective date of this
Act. For the purposes of this section, an offense is committed
before the effective date of this Act if any element of the offense
occurs before that date.
(b) An offense committed before the effective date of this
Act is governed by the law in effect when the offense was committed,
and the former law is continued in effect for that purpose.
SECTION 3. This Act takes effect September 1, 2007.
