Governor Doyle is calling on legislators to legalize sobriety checkpoints, where cops can randomly stop motorists just to see if they've been drinking.
Kari Kinnard, head of the Wisconsin chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, applauds the move. She says the checkpoints are very effective at making people aware that police are out protecting our safety. Kinnard says they also make people think about getting a safe ride home if they've been drinking.
Wisconsin is one of only twelve states to ban the practice.
The proposal is expected to draw heavy opposition from the Tavern League when the new Legislature convenes in January.
