When it comes to car and truck-related fatalities, sometimes, the initial situation isn't what it appears. This is true for the family of a Wisconsin woman who was struck and killed by a linen truck accident while out for a 60 mile bike ride in the afternoon in summer of 2017. In somewhat of a delayed timespan, the driver of that truck has been charged with criminal charges in relation to her death.
Everybody knows about drunk driving and intoxicated driving. This includes the potential impacts it can have and the fact that it's illegal. However, many charged with OWI didn't realize they were over the legal limit, or that their actions would be considered breaking the law. However, ignorance is not a valid defense to OWI.
Did you know that a former police officer turned college professor invented the first breath-testing machine? Dr. Robert Borkenstein, the accepted father of the Breathalyzer, wanted to find a way for law enforcement officials to determine whether someone had enough alcohol in his or her system to be drunk without a blood sample. That was in 1954.
