The Dallas Morning News Published this article today regarding legislative hearings on DWI cases and enforcement.  The Senate Criminal Justice Committee, comprised of various experts on the matter such as judges as well as victims, met in Austin to discuss possible changes.

In trying to keep my editorializing to a minimum — I will say what was discussed on the panel is an excellent review of the real problems with DWI enforcement.  These are the issues that attorneys fighting Driving While Intoxicated cases see every day.  This is to say that the State’s “when all you have is a hammer — everything becomes a nail” philosophy backfires and creates just as many problems as it solves.
