North Carolina Woman Arrested for Fatal DWI Has Three Previous Drunk Driving Convictions

A Charlotte woman with three drunk driving convictions was arrested after a crash that killed a pedestrian Monday night. Sandra Klees, 40, is charged with DWI, driving without a license and felony hit-and-run. Read the complete story from the Charlotte Observer.

Research shows that alcohol ignition interlocks on the vehicles of all convicted drunk drivers significantly reduces deaths and injuries due to drunk driving -- an average of 64 percent reduction in repeat offenses.

Contact your lawmakers and urge them to support ignition interlocks for all convicted drunk drivers. And make a personal Pledge to Eliminate Drunk Driving.
