Changes for DUII Offenders


Big changes could be coming soon for those caught drinking and driving. An expert panel is pushing for new rules hat would double the mandated treatment time for drunk drivers. Thursday in Salem a special planel is meeting to crack down more on drunk drivers . If approved, the idea would mandate one year of treatment for repeat offenders and a six months for the first DUII arrest. Don Zeiglar with Serenity Lane in Bend says it's important to go after even first time offenders more aggressively. “Statistics years ago showed on a national average a person who gets their 1st DUII has driven up to 80 times already." Zeigler is on the panel making the recommendations to the State. He says some people who come in voluntarily for treatment say they've been driving drunk for years without facing any serious consequences.
