Driving under the influence of alcohol is never a good idea. Alcohol and many illegal recreational drugs cause a reduced ability to use good judgment and react quickly enough to drive safely. Although every jurisdiction in Wisconsin and the United States has laws against drunk driving, some jurisdictions are taking a more progressive look at the crime.
Drinking and driving should never mix, but that does not stop some people from thinking they are not too drunk to drive. The lack of good judgment that comes with alcohol consumption or drug use makes it dangerous for all other Wisconsinites on the roads. But even if a driver is suspected of drunk driving, they have rights that should be understood.
