Drunk driving bill coming up

September 16, 2009

And no I’m not going to call it “drunken” driving, which apparently every media outlet in the state does now.  Journal-Sentinel:

The package of drunken-driving reforms the state Assembly is expected to pass this week will include a provision making a first offense a crime if a child younger than 16 is in the vehicle, a top Assembly Democrat said Tuesday.

A child less than 16. Great emotional appeal but it is essentially a way for the state to avoid confronting the enormous legal and administrative burden that would result in criminalizing 1st offense OWI.
