I wonder if this woman is dealing with mental health issues as well as serious alcohol problems. If so, both illnesses need to be identified and treated. There's no question she's a danger to society and should not be driving. But it sounds like she also needs treatment, and it ought to be provided. There's always a chance, often a good chance, that proper treatment can bring recovery and safety on the roads. Name-calling and dumb-ass comments about Wisconsin and Minnesota aren't helpful. Let's all, including me, use our heads and treat people who need it.

There is a cure for her, unfortunately, Dr. Kevorkien is no longer in practice.

Funny thing, they treat a person driving without a license that lost it over a fine (not related to a DWI) more harshly then a DWI.
The NON-Alcohol related driving with out a license will face JAIL & FINE.
The DWI offender will get a smaller fine & have to go to some classes & maybe waste the time of people in AA by sitting in there meetings & taking time from people that are there AND WANT help.
I'm a speeder. I live in the country & drive to the cities a lot & like most making the long boring drive, I speed. I get about a speeding ticket a year. I take them all to court in hopes of a plea bargain (I rarely ever get a break, but it worth a try). So I get to spend a day in court watching the other cases.
Most parking, expired tabs, & non-alcohol related driving offences will get a harsher punishment then thieves, prostitutes, drug dealers/possessions, assaulters DWI’s
They give DWI offenders classes instead of jail time, they get breaks & they will keep taking a chance, because the consequences are not scary enough to detour them.
How about this to start
First DWI/DUI you are put on Antabuse for 5 years & serve NO LESS THEN 90 days in jail & pay NO LESS THEN $1,000.00 fines. NO EXCEPTIONS !
(Antabuse is a drug that makes you violently ill when you try & drink alcohol.)
Second DWI/DUI you are put on Antabuse FOR LIFE & serve NO LESS THEN 1 year in jail & pay NO LESS THEN $5,000.00 in fines. NO EXCEPTIONS !
AUTOMATIC 10 years in prison if you find a way to get the Antabuse implant out of you !
Third or more DWI/DUI NO LESS THEN 20 years, NO EXCEPTIONS !
