ST. JOSEPH, MO. (2009-11-05) St. Joseph's prosecuting attorney is among officials meeting to keep drunk drivers off of Missouri's roads.
Dwight Scroggins and other local and State authorities met with governor Nixon at the summit at the State Capitol yesterday. Scroggins told the gathering one of the biggest problems is those who are pulled over for DWI are often treated as first-time offenders who just make a mistake. During his summit governor Nixon said many DWI offenders are simply slapped on the wrist, with a third of repeat offenders being charged with a misdemeanor instead of a felony. Possible solutions coming out of the summit include creating a public database for drunk drivers and further expanding the use of ignition interlock devises.
