Our View: Lawmakers consider tougher drunk driving laws
Newspapers in our area and across the state often report the names of people arrested for drunk driving, and sometimes those reports include people who have broken the law multiple times.
In Wisconsin, multiple OWI cases are far from abnormal. It is quite common to find reports about people who have been arrested five, six, seven, eight times, and more! Despite these disturbing figures, Wisconsin state laws penalizing drunken driving are among the weakest in the nation.
