Hurray for Tony Staskunas of West Allis, WI. June 12, 2008

I like Tony.  He was opposing counsel in an estate dispute a number of years ago.  He is one of Wisconsin’s Legislators that has a “full time” job besides his job representing West Allis and surrounding areas in Madison.

But now I like him even more.  He is one of 5 Wisconsin Legislators who have proposed making 1st time drunk drivers subject to an interlock device.   An ignition interlock system makes a driver blow into a tube to check their blood alcohol content before they are able to drive. Good job Tony Staskunas. 

I hope that the drunk drivers are the ones that pay for these devices and NOT the rest of us. 

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel states that he proposes that the maker of the interlock systems be forced to set up a fund to pay for the drivers who can’t pay for it themselves.   Why penalize the makers of the companies? The drivers should be the ones penalized.  Again, why not put them in prison or work release (working somewhere where they don’t have to drive obviously) until they pay for the interlock system.  When they pay for it they can join the rest of free society.

Just my two cents.
