MADD urges state of Wisconsin to use sobriety checkpoints

Local Wisconsin police officers have teamed up with Mothers Against Drunk Driving to urge the state’s legislature to allow sobriety checkpoints to be set up in cities across the state.

Sobriety checkpoints are used in 38 of the fifty states, and the constitutionality of sobriety checkpoints was upheld by the Supreme Court in 1990. The checkpoints serve to prevent people from driving drunk. When drivers drive through a checkpoint, they are stopped briefly in order for officers to determine if they have been drinking.

MADD is hoping that sobriety checkpoints will be set up in Wisconsin to prevent over 200 deaths that occur in the state each year because of drunk driving.

If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in an accident with a drunk driver, please contact the Green Bay drunk driving accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874.
