Local legislator pushes for tougher drunk driving laws
WCLO's Stan Stricker reports on area legislators quest for tougher drunk driving laws
An area legislator pushes for tougher drunk driving laws.
State Senator Neal Kedzie of Elkhorn tells WCLO's Stan Milam Show several bills are being considered. Kedzie is offering three bills himself. The Republican says part of the interest could be because of recent high profile fatality crashes, including the deaths of a father and son in Fort Atkinson. A big concern for legislators is how to handle repeat drunk drivers. He says these offenders are hard core addicts.
One of Kedzie's proposals includes lowering the legal blood alcohol content for a second offense from .08, to .02.
