Several thousand people die in the US annually due to drunk drivers, and many Americans think that the penalties are not severe enough. In some cases, convicted drunk drivers can escape jail time.
That will not happen in West Virginia now with the new Andrea and Willy’s DUI Law. The new law was passed last week and will ensure that drunk drivers who kill or injure people will have serious consequences.
Two West Virginia families lost children to drunk drivers in 2009 and 2011, respectively, and the new law has been named after them.
