Republican state Senator Linda Gray has always been tough on DUI's and DUI laws. In her eyes, drunk driving is a crime that needs to have strict laws. Over the last decade she has fought for tougher and tougher DUI restrictions. First time offenders have a breathalyzer device placed in their vehicle that will not start the engine if the user blows over the .08 legal limit. Currently, this ruling places the device in a car for a whole year but Senator Gray is now rethinking her stance. She is now pushing to lighten the DUI charge for first time offenders down to only six months. This new stance has started a whole new argument on drunk driving and DUI sentencing. Fox News has a great article discussing both sides of this discussion. Read the article and let us know your thoughts!
