Wisconsin Assembly: New bills aim to toughen drunk driving laws

Drunk driving laws in Wisconsin are on the verge of being changed at this time.

A current bill in the Wisconsin State Assembly, Assembly Bill 208, states that the drunk driving convictions should be a felony after the third one instead of the fourth. The bill was originally introduced in May 2011, but is just now receiving a hearing.

The senator backing the bill is excited that this one is being heard, but also wants to push for even more strict laws. Other laws that are being discussed is the possibility of sobriety checkpoints and making the first drunk driving offense a crime.

If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a collision involving a drunk driver, you need representation on your side at this time that is committed to helping you receive the compensation you deserve.
