Ohio Letting Repeat Drunk Drivers Behind the Wheel
The prevalence of driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol in Ohio is appallingly high. Last year, Ohio Highway Patrol arrested 27,000 people for OVI (Operating a Vehicle Impaired). If these are the numbers that were caught, how many others slipped under the radar? Even more tragically, 358 lives were tragically cut due to drunk drivers that same year.
What is our great state doing to curb these awful statistics? The answer is…sadly, very little. A recent report from our state revealed that almost 5,500 Ohioans have at least five or more drunk driving convictions. Why are these reckless individuals being allowed to get back behind the wheel? Why isn’t more being done to stop them, such as making it an outright felony to drink and drive with a child in the car? It has been proven that Ignition Interlock devices (which require the driver to blow into the device to prove their BAC is at a legal level) reduces these types of car accidents, so why is it not mandatory to put them in vehicles of known offenders?
If you or someone you love has been harmed in a car accident due to an impaired driver, you know that you are more than just a statistic. You are a person who had a whole future ahead of you, but now that future is uncertain due to the extent of your injuries. If you lost someone you cared about due to a drunk driver, then you know firsthand the pain and suffering that follows an automobile collision due to an impaired driver.
