Drunk Driving News for February 8, 2011

Todd Miler who shares office space with me handles OWI cases in central Iowa. His availability to me has allowed me to watch how the law works to handle the criminal defense of these cases. I've been handling the PI side of drunken driving cases now for the better part of 30 years and they can be a challenge. The law is somewhat convoluted and patched together from a public policy trying to deter drinking and driving. Of course after reading thousands of wrong-way driving news reports from all over the country the risks of drinking and driving are pretty telling. If I can answer your questions give me a call; otherwise here today are the news items for Iowa about OWI, drinking and driving or drunk driving as it's commonly referred to.
