Newsmakers: Do the New Drunk Driving Laws Work?

New drunk-driving laws became law in Wisconsin on July 1, 2010 — changes that included making first-time OWI a crime if a child is in the vehicle, making fourth-time offense a felony in some circumstances, and requiring judges to order the installation of ignition interlocks. In a May 19 Newsmakers, Major Dan Lonsdorf of the State Patrol, Assistant Dane County District Attorney Jay Mimier and Paul Jenkins, who lost three family members in an accident caused by a convicted drunken driver in 2008, assessed progress made by the new law, and other changes they said are still needed.
