Progress On Drunk Driving Laws? September 11, 2009

I’m hopeful that this story from the Badger Herald isn’t just wishful thinking!  It appears that both Republicans and Democrats are making headway to strengthen Wisconsin’s drunk driving laws.  As you probably know Wisconsin’s drunk driving laws are among the most lax in the United States.

According to the article:

Some of the changes put forth in the bills include requiring repeat offenders to have an ignition interlock on their car, increasing minimum fines and time of imprisonment, and allowing multiple offenders to pursue alcohol treatment with parole instead of being sentenced to time in prison.

Now, I’m not sure about the details especially the part about “increasing the time of imprisonment” but at the same time allowing multiple offenders to “pursue alcohol treatment” instead of time in prison.

I’ll keep you updated.
