Drunk-driver convicts allowed to drive if sober

first_imgPIERRE, S.D. – In some South Dakota counties, people repeatedly arrested for drunk driving can continue to drive, but they must report to their local sheriff for breath testing twice a day – every morning and every night. If they don’t show, they’re tracked down and thrown in jail. And if they fail the test – if they have been drinking anything at all – they go to jail on the spot. It’s a two-year pilot program that has worked so well that South Dakota is about to become the first state to put the approach into law. South Dakota Attorney General Larry Long, who started the experiment, noted that many people arrested for DUI are alcoholics who do it again and again, even after their licenses have been taken away. So the way to attack the problem, he said, is not to prevent them from getting behind the wheel but to stop them from drinking. “If they quit drinking, I don’t care if they drive,” he said. Authorities have no figures that could show whether the pilot program in 14 of South Dakota’s 66 counties has saved lives or reduced drunk driving arrests or crashes. But it appears to be keeping people sober. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
