The Kansas Legislature is considering some changes to
DUI laws for 2015. One proposal would cut to five years the time that must have
passed before a person can
petition a court for expungement of a DUI conviction from seven or ten years to just five years after probation
has passed. The purpose is to allow people who have been convicted of
DUI to better find employment after they have completed probation successfully.
The Kansas Senate also proposed an amendment to current DUI laws that would
create a special driver's license for people convicted of DUI and
required to maintain an ignition interlock device on their vehicle when
driving. 'It will look just like a regular driver's license, but
it will say DUI on it, that way police know without a doubt that you're
on a resticted license for DUI.' said Senator Greg Smith, R-Overland
Park. Currently, drivers are denied the plastic hard copy drivers license
while on a DUI/ Interlock restriction and must carry a paper license during
