Texas has certainly had more than its share of drunk drivers, so much so that drunk driving deaths and injuries caused the formation of the Dallas based Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), but drunk driving affects other states as well. According to Maryland motor vehicle statistics Maryland has 25,120 residents with three or more DUIs and an incredible 3980 residents with five driving while intoxicated convictions.
Texas studies have repeatedly shown that most drunk drivers are not arrested until they have driven under the influence of alcohol many times and continue to drive drunk after the first conviction. Maryland’s experience with repeat DUI offenders underscores the need for certain and severe consequences after the first or at most the second offense.
