Drunk Driving Is Not a Victimless Crime

At a recent debate, one of Nancy's opponents pledged that if he is elected District Attorney, he will “[make] sure that the drunk driving cases that currently represent more than half of the misdemeanor DUIs — first offense, no victim — do not go to trial.”

Watch the Video:

It is an incredibly irresponsible threat to public safety for a candidate for District Attorney to tell drunk drivers he won’t prosecute them if they haven’t been caught before. But that’s what our opponent is doing. He’s also already outraised us 4-1, and that’s why Nancy needs your help to fight back.

  • Drunk driving is the #1 cause of death on our roadways.
  • An average drunk driver has driven drunk over 80 times before their first arrest.
  • There were 1,059 drunk driving deaths in California in 2016.

This is about public safety and making sure we hold people accountable for actions that endanger pedestrians, bicyclists, other drivers, and our roadways. DUIs have always been the most important misdemeanors we prosecute and we should continue to do so to keep our communities safe.
