Everyone has heard all of the public service announcements, and most people know at least one person who has been arrested for DUI. Some even have lost loved ones due to drinking and driving. In a recent story published by WBAY in Green Bay, details of a recent crackdown were reported, and while the effort was a success, there were some daunting facts present in the story.
“The Wisconsin State Patrol says the state’s campaign against drunken driving was a success. The “Over the Limit, Under Arrest” campaign from August 17 through September 3 resulted in a 150 percent more drunken-driving arrests compared to a similar effort last year.Jones says Wisconsin has one of the highest rates of drunk-driving fatalities in the country. He hopes successful results of a crackdown will lead to more grants for patrols more often, leading to more arrests.”
