Wyoming May Adopt 24/7 Sobriety Program

No Alcohol, SobrietyWyoming is considering adopting a sobriety program for repeat drunk-drivers. Those accused of drunk driving could avoid jail time by staying sober. The 24/7 Sobriety Program is being discussed by state officials who are trying to decide if the program is the right fit. Repeat offenders would need to submit to twice-a-day breathalyzer tests while they await trial instead of going to jail.If a test is failed then they would be immediately taken into custody and their bond would be revoked. State Legislators Gov. Matt Mead and Attorney General Greg Phillips along with the Governor’s Council on Impaired Driving have been discussing the 24/7 Sobriety Program as an alternative to jail time.
