DUI Court Takes New Approach To Old Problem
Tue 6/25/13 at Noon & 7PM The state is trying a new way of dealing with people who’ve been arrested multiple times for drunk driving: a DUI court. The goal is to change behavior, reduce addiction, and keep drunk drivers off the roads. Tuesday on Vermont Edition we learn how a pilot DUI Court in Windsor County will operate and a whether it will reduce drunk driving.
Our guests are former State's Attorney Bobby Sand, who is leading the new initiative, and Judge Amy Davenport. We also learn how similar courts have worked in other states from David Wallace, former director of the National Center of DWI Courts.
