According to a recent government report, Wisconsin has the worst drunken driving rate in the country.  15 percent of all adult drivers throughout the United States have reported driving drunk in the past year.  

     Wisconsin has a drunk driving rate of more than 25 percent of all adult drivers within the past year according to the government report. The worst five states for drunk driving within in the past year are North Dakota, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota.

     Utah, a State that has a high Mormon population that does not consume alcohol, had the lowest incidence of drunken driving. It was the only state where fewer than 10 percent of adult motorists reported driving under the influence. The next lowest four states, West Virginia, Arkansas, Kentucky and North Carolina all had rates of drivers who were drunk of less than 11 percent for the prior year.

      Wisconsin has enacted harsh drinking and driving laws over the past several years.  Drunk driving is officially known in Wisconsin as Operating While Intoxicated (OWI).  If a person has two or more OWI violations after January 1, 1989, the OWI violations will say on the driverís permanent record.  However, if a person has one OWI violation within ten years, and then obtains a subsequent OWI offense outside that 10 year period, the subsequent OWI will be considered a first offense.

     An experienced Wisconsin OWI Attorney may be able to challenge portions of OWI.  In addition, by filing appropriate motions, your Wisconsin OWI Attorney may able to have the criminal case dismissed or reduced from an OWI depending upon the facts of your OWI arrest.  It is highly recommended that you hire an attorney that is familiar with OWIs in the county where you were charged.  The Wisconsin OWI Lawyerwill be very familiar with the local prosecutors and the judges and should obtain the best results.
