    DWI offenders are required to have interlocks and check in monthly to get those devices serviced- that’s plenty of oversight. What Snively seems to be suggesting is not only are we going to saddle someone with a DWI conviction, punitive psychotherapy, and an interlock which they must pay for, but also we’re going to do the ankle monitor and enforcement agencies a favor by extracting more money from drunks. If they’re drinking and not driving, who cares? If DWI court helped someone avoid a conviction, and the stigma that goes along with it, it might be helpful. How about we focus on texting and driving?

    (a) the average DWI offender


    (b) the off-duty cop who gets drunk in a bar, pulls a loaded weapon on the patrons, and is allowed to drive home unhindered by the local PD
