The problem is if someone is willing to drive without a license (or on suspended) anyway, it doesn’t actually stop that.

Please note, I’m fine with the actual changes. It’s just that people would be surprised how many DUIs are already people driving without a valid license.

Yup. My dad had his license pulled when I was eleven? Didn't technically get it back til I was 23, I think?

Drove plenty of times in between and drunk/high for several trips.

These laws while good intended will not really stop it.

I mean they can't drive if they die in jail. Which in some cases is where this is going.
