Sen. Kedzie thank you for taking up this issue.

I do question why Senate Bill 152 would make a first offense OWI with a BAC of 0.15 or greater a criminal offense. Why not just make it the legal limit of 0.08?

Also, criminal charges of first-offense drunken driving should carry a minimum penalty of 5 or 10 days in the county jail. This will curb the "weekend warriors," and business professionals, who know they can get away with one.

It doesn't matter
