Drunk Driving Rules Could Change

Cheyenne, WY – A bill that would change the way some drunk driving cases are handled is making its way through the Wyoming house. The bill says that if someone is over the legal blood alcohol limit within two hours of being stopped, then they can be found guilty for drinking and driving. Currently a prosecutor must prove that someone was drunk at the time the person was driving. Because of this, counties often have to pay experts to drive all over the state to help prosecute cases in court. House Floor Leader Colin Simpson thinks the bill goes too far. Some legislators say they fear that the bill would give procecutors an unfair advantage. The bill will be debated two more times.
