As if by coincidence, TLC (formerly The Learning Channel) will launch a new reality program on December 1, 2011 called D.U.I.
As Entertainment Weekly reports, “The network has ordered D.U.I., a new series that goes behind the scenes of drunk-driving law enforcement in Oklahoma. TLC has picked up 12 episodes, with six debuting next month and the rest planned for 2012.”
D.U.I. (or in North Carolina “DWI”) is no laughing matter. It’s a serious legal issue, which in North Carolina as of December 1, 2011 becomes much more serious with the implementation of new punishments that increase the costs and potential jail time available to people convicted of driving while impaired on North Carolina’s roads.
