A state legislative leader says it will take more than tougher laws to change drinking and driving habits in Wisconsin.
There’s an increased push at the Capitol to crack down on repeat drunk drivers, but State Senate President Fred Risser (D-Madison) says “all the laws in the world aren’t going to stop drunk driving.”
Risser expects lawmakers to address the issue when they return in January. However, he says Wisconsin also needs to focus on changing its “drinking culture” to make a difference. Risser says there needs to be a greater focus on educating the public about the travesties that result from drinking and driving.
