Those who have been affected by drunk driving accidents are now coming forward and voicing their opinion in the Wisconsin State Assembly so that lawmakers will toughen up on laws that prohibit impaired drivers from getting on the roadway.
As of now, in the state of Wisconsin, it is not a felony drunk driving charge until the fourth time a person is convicted. A new bill currently being discussed is Assembly Bill 208 and will allow for the third conviction to be felony charge.
This bill was first introduced in May 2011, but is just now getting a hearing. Many are excited for this bill to be pass and others will be continuing to push for even stricter enforcement such as sobriety checkpoints.
