5th offense DUI-70 out of 161 Framing the Wisconsin Drinking Culture: College Drinking Culture Wisconsin Drunk Driving Laws
Wisconsin is the only state that treats first offenses as a traffic violation instead of crimes
It is not a felony until your fifth offense
All revocations, suspensions, and convictions arising out of the same incident only count as one against your record.
All jail or prison time can be greatly reduced if offender successfully completes a drug and/or alcohol
Underage citizens can legally drink anywhere in the state as long as they have a Parent, legal guardian, or spouse supervising Possible Solution? Law Changes
Require ignition interlocks for all repeat drunken drivers and first-time offenders with a BAC of 0.15 or greater
Make a fourth drunken driving offense a felony if it occurs within five years of a previous offense
Make first-offense drunken driving a misdemeanor if a child younger than 16 is in the vehicle
Eliminate lighter punishments for offenders who have BAC below 0.10
Expand to the rest of the state a program that gives judges the option of offering reduced jail time to offenders who complete alcohol or drug treatment Between 1999-2005, 157 college-ages students drank themselves to death.
1,700 college students die each year from alcohol-related unintentional injuries.
More than 97,000 students are victims of alcohol-related sexual assault or date rape.
