No matter where you drive in the country, it is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 or higher. Yet, every year a third of all traffic fatalities are attributed to drunk driving.
August through Labor Day, Wisconsin law enforcement will be zeroing in on impaired drivers as part of the national “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign to crackdown on drunk drivers.
In Wisconsin, operating while intoxicated (OWI) can result in loss of driving privileges, fines and possibly jail time. Penalties can vary depending on whether it is a subsequent offense, the BAC level, and other factors. Of course, the most severe penalties are reserved for OWI causing great bodily harm or death.
If you have been arrested for Wisconsin OWI, the consequences can be serious. In 2015 alone, nearly 25,000 drivers were convicted for drunk driving in the state underscoring the importance of getting experienced legal representation to fight the charges you face..
