St. Patrick's Day Drunk Driving 'Crackdown' Has Odd Twist

Authorities trumpet a crackdown on St. Patrick's Day drunk driving - - which sounds smart, given the documented history of fatal OWI crashes that day - - until you read that the crackdown means "no warnings" to impaired drivers.

Do you mean to tell me that some suspected drunk drivers are merely warned, then allowed to weave back down the road?

For a more enlightened approach, read the related remarks of Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk, here.
