It is deer hunting season in Wisconsin and that means many men and women will be heading out into the woods in their blaze orange gear to wait for the perfect shot. While they wait many will keep warm with alcoholic beverages and unfortunately for some the effects of those drinks will not wear off before they get behind the wheels of their cars to go home.
For anyone who has ever had a drink and then thought about getting behind the wheel, it can be tough to decide if driving will be safe even if the individual does not feel intoxicated. Choosing to drive and then getting pulled over by the cops is not a good way to determine if driving is responsible, so one Wisconsin bar has installed a device to make this type of decision for its patrons a little easier.
The majority of the stories reported on this blog concern the status of Wisconsin drunk driving laws and the arrests of Wisconsin residents for alcohol-related driving offenses. The recent arrest of a Hollywood film actor demonstrates that anyone, from your average Wisconsin resident to a recognized celebrity, can be forced to face the potential consequences of a DUI charge.
Most people's parents hope that as their children grow those kids will learn from their mistakes and avoid making similar errors in the future. While some people find success achieving that aspiration, others struggle with problems that inhibit them from always making the best decisions.
While most DUI-related accidents occur on the streets, sometimes the consequences of drunk driving accidents can play out in less common locations.
