A Missouri prosecutor recently said that state law allows a repeat drunk driving offender to be treated as a danger to society. In 2013, a device was put to use in the state that could potentially help prevent personal injury by stopping those who are intoxicated from operating a motor vehicle. A recent incident occurred where such a device might have proved useful.
The Missouri Chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Drivers recently expressed their frustration that a 51-year-old female in the state is facing what could possibly be her seventh driving while intoxicated charge. The group called the repeat offenses an outrage. In Missouri, a person can be documented as a "repeat offender" after his or her fourth DWI charge.
