Texas DWI Laws to be Re-examined by Legislature

As I’ve written about on this blog and elsewhere for years, our enforcement of DWI laws in Texas is broken.  State lawmakers are now reconsidering many aspects of our Driver Responsibility Program and its implications for Texas Citizens, reports the San Antonio Express-News .  The Austin American-Statesman has published an editorial calling for a treatment based approach.

The county courts are bursting at the seams; the prosecutors face tough choices on the allocation of resources; MADD doesn’t like protections afforded by the Constitution and the legislature is going to consider cutting a revenue stream.  Some people are going to be mighty uncomfortable on this one.
