Wisconsin lawmakers propose legislation to revoke drivers’ licenses of repeat OWI offenders

Lawmakers in Wisconsin are proposing legislation that will allow courts to revoke the licenses of drivers who have several drunken driving violations, a November 10th article reported.

Representative Eric Genrich (D-Green Bay) stated that the bill is designed to create more stringent penalties for habitual drunk drivers as a way of discouraging the practice. Under the proposed bill, a 10-year license revocation will be imposed on drivers who have committed several violations. After 10 years of revocation, offenders may again apply for their license and the Department of Transportation (DOT) will make the decision of whether or not to grant the license based on the severity of their offenses. Currently, drunk driving offenders in Wisconsin may have their license revoked for a maximum of one year.
