Prom Time Concern for Safety Officals
Saturday, April 26th, 2014 -- 8:13 AMProm is an exciting time of year for many high schoolers, but for parents and transportation safety officials, there are concerns over the potential for impaired driving.
Wisconsin?s Absolute Sobriety Law prohibits all drivers under age 21 from operating a motor vehicle with any amount of alcohol in their system. Consuming alcohol is dangerous for drivers of all ages, but especially for younger drivers who lack experience behind the wheel and tend to take more risks.
Breaking the law can result in a $390 fine, a three month driver license suspension and four demerit points. Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for young people in Wisconsin.
