Is license revocation only a penalty for drunk driving?

Individuals who keep up with this Wisconsin drunk driving defense law blog probably know that license revocation is a possible penalty for being convicted of drunk driving. However, alleged drunk drivers are not the only ones who can have their licenses taken away. License revocation is a relatively common potential consequence for a variety of driving and non-driving offenses.

Drunk driving can lead to the loss of driving privileges

Facing allegations of drunk driving can be devastating to many Wisconsin residents. Not only does the process of defending one's self against the charges cost both time and money, but many people also suffer damage to their reputations even when allegations of driving while intoxicated are false. In some cases, individuals convicted of drunk driving lose their drivers licenses temporarily or permanently. Those losses can have long-term consequences on the affected individuals' abilities to earn wages.

Losing one's driver's license can be an injurious punishment for a Wisconsin resident convicted of drunk driving. Many people who live in the state need driver's licenses to get to work. Without a license, most people would not be able to hold down jobs and earn the money they need to support their families.

Drivers license revocation as a part of alcohol rehabilitation

Many people think that individuals convicted of drunk driving are irresponsible miscreants who fail to contribute to society. This misapprehension is true across the country and right here in Wisconsin, where hard working people who struggle with alcohol addictions occasionally make poor decisions to drive when they shouldn't. Though their actions may put others at risk, drunken driving convictions may be the best opportunities for such individuals to take control of their lives.
