DUI on Discovery Fit & Health
By MADD | July 23, 2012| 2 Comments | Filed in: Drunk Driving

On Tuesday, July 24, Discovery Fit & Health will premiere the series, DUI, on their network.  The documentary-style show follows the Oklahoma Highway Patrol as they find and arrest people driving drunk, and tells the stories of the alleged offenders and their families.

Drunk driving is the most frequently committed violent crime in the U.S. In 2009, more than 1.4 million drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics. That's less than one percent of the 147 million self-reported episodes of alcohol-impaired driving among U.S. adults each year.

We applaud Discovery Fit & Health for showcasing the lifesaving work of our heroes in law enforcement, bringing awareness to the issue of drunk driving, and showing the consequences of this violent crime.

I am not sure how DUI in itself is considered a violent crime. DUI with injury or death yes, but just driving while at .08? Sounds extreme. It is pretty much a victimless crime unless someone is hurt or injured.MADD is looking for the second coming of prohibition.
