Laws in the assembly push for tougher drunk driving laws

Current bills in the Wisconsin Assembly are attempting to toughen the laws on the drunk driving in the state in order to cut back on the number of impaired drivers that get behind the wheels.

A bill that is currently in the assembly would change the current law that states that drunk driving is not a felony until the fourth conviction, in order to make a felony on the third conviction.

The bill was first suggested in May 2011, but it only now receiving a hearing. Those who are behind the tougher laws include families that have been affected by drunk driver. Many of these families have lost a family member in a car accident where alcohol was involved and are pushing the state to help combat this.
