§ 10:162-2.3. Authorized referrals to the Intoxicated Driving Program
(a) The Chief of the Intoxicated Driving Program may receive referrals in writing from courts, Motor Vehicle licensing authorities, highway safety agencies, law enforcement agencies, physicians, family members, health agencies or social service agencies regarding persons who are believed to be posing a public danger in the operation of a motor vehicle or vessel as a result of the misuse of alcohol and/or drugs. The Intoxicated Driving Program may schedule an interview with the referred individual at an appropriate Intoxicated Driver Resource Center or at the Office of Intoxicated Driving Program for evaluation and appropriate action. A copy of the referral document will be given to the client at the time of the interview. Client failure to attend the interview or any ordered treatment or referral under this chapter shall result in a recommendation to the Division of Motor Vehicles for appropriate action.
(b) The Intoxicated Driving Program may receive referrals from any Division of Motor Vehicles hearing in which it is determined that alcohol or drugs may have been involved in the operation of a motor vehicle or vessel, independent of court findings reported to the Division as a result of court action for an alcohol or drug related offense.
(c) The Intoxicated Driving Program may refer a licensee who is referred as a result of a Division of Motor Vehicles hearing to a treatment or a rehabilitation program.
