MADD gives Wisconsin’s OWI law low score

Wisconsin current drunk driving law recently got a poor rating from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), an article stated on Monday, February 17.

According to MADD, Wisconsin is the only remaining state in America that does not consider a first offense Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) offense a felony. The poor, two star rating was given as a result of this and the legislatures’ slow process of upgrading the current drunk driving law to impose harsher penalties to offenders. Aside from making first OWI offenses a crime, MADD also wants Wisconsin law to install ignition interlock systems for first time drivers convicted of an OWI.

The lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier ® believe that anyone in Wisconsin who has been injured in a car accident by a drunk driver should be able to get financial compensation and justice from the reckless driver. Call us at 800-242-2874 to discuss your situation, options, and how we can help.
