Potential Reactionary DUI Legislation in the Wake of a Highly Publicized DUI Crash

Potential Reactionary DUI Legislation in the Wake of a Highly Publicized DUI Crash

Legislators are seeking reactionary based legislation in the wake of a highly publicized DUI crash resulting in deaths by a driver with a current DUI case pending and multiple DUI arrests and convctions. DUI deaths are tragic. However, basing legislation on the actions of an atypical person/instance is extreme and potentially unconstitutional. More legislation is fine as long as it is proportionate, legal, and CONSTITUTIONAL. Reactionary legislation rarely is.
