Assembly: Drunk driving laws proposed in Wisconsin

A new bill is in the Wisconsin Assembly at this time that is aiming to help tighten the laws on drunk driving in the state in order to prevent people from getting behind the wheel of a car after drinking.

In the state of Wisconsin, a drunk driving charge is not considered a felony until the fourth conviction. The new bill, Assembly Bill 208, states that the third drunk driving charge will now be felony.

Many are for this bill, but also want even tougher laws to be put into place such as sobriety checkpoints. Many supporters of this bill have lost a family member in an accident that involved drunk driving and want to see something done about this serious issue.
