Abstract:     
This article discusses how legislative intent can influence the courts' reasoning in statutory analysis. In particular, the article examines how California courts have relied on the legislative intent behind the DUI laws in order to interpret the term "driving," and how students can incorporate this form of reasoning in order to more fully develop their analysis of this issue.
