Tiger Woods to enter DUI diversion program

Efforts to reduce impaired driving in Illinois and around the country often involve passing stricter laws with more severe penalties, but recidivism rates among drunk drivers remain worryingly high. Lawmakers in several states have tested the effectiveness of intoxicated driver diversion programs that allow offenders to avoid criminal penalties when they meet certain requirements, and the results have often been extremely promising.

Criminal drug prosecutions ineffective

While there have been indications that the current administration and the Department of Justice will step up enforcement of the nation's drug laws, a report from the FBI demonstrates that drug arrests rose during 2016. There is evidence that criminalizing drugs simply doesn't work, but law enforcement agencies and governments in Illinois and across the country continue to focus on drug crimes.
