House backs off mandatory three days for first-time DUI

This story ("House drops part of DUI bill," 2/14/2004) in the Norfolk paper explains how theHouse of Delegates stepped back from proposed anti-DUI laws that would have been among the toughest in the nation.

My sister told me once that the laws against drunk driving in Sweden were so punitive that there were no drunk drivers, but to her observation in that country there were, however, an awful lot of drunk walkers.
