Wisconsin leads the nation in the percentage of drivers Driving Under the Influence (DUI). Now a handful of Wisconsin counties have become the first in the nation to administer alcohol biomarker tests to repeat drunken drivers for evidence of heavy drinking. These tests are evidence-based and can look back weeks or even months.
On this program, Dr. Pamela Bean, Todd Campbell and Tamara Feest describe how biomarker monitoring works, and how, combined with appropriate treatment, it may help repeat offenders stay sober longer, keep them from getting rearrested, save counties money – and make road travel safer.
