MADD says first-time drunken driving offenders get off too easy in state

Wisconsin is being told to change its attitude about drinking and driving. Mothers Against Drunk Driving Wisconsin executive director Kari Kinnard says first-time offenders have it too easy.

Kinnard says the state needs stricter penalties so drivers think twice about getting behind the wheel after drinking.

MADD is calling on lawmakers to allow police to run sobriety checkpoints.

The group also wants to require ignition interlock devices to be installed in cars after a person is convicted of an OWI.
