Mothers Against Drunk Driving in Nebraska say that when DUI charges are lessened like in Mayor Vavricek's case the message that drunk driving is a serious crime is lost.
That's not all they had to say.
They released a statement:
"The decision of the city prosecutor to drop the charges from driving under the influence to reckless driving sets a precedent that those who drink and drive will not see the consequences of their actions.
It sends a message that Mayor Vavricek's .09 blood alcohol level, clearly over the .08 legal limit, was not taken into consideration."
