Even the alcohol industry admits that repeat drunk drivers are a problem in the U.S., and most people believe lax laws and enforcement are to blame. Recent scientific research suggests, however, that the problem may lie with offenders' brains: They lack adequate decision-making abilities. This story lends further evidence to that argument.
At 1:30 this morning, Ann Marie Abdullin was arrested in Worcester County, Md. on charges of drunk driving. Later that morning, she was picked up from the station by a sober driver, who promptly drove Abdullin back to her car, say police. At 4:30 a.m., she was stopped again by police, who say her blood-alcohol level was still over the legal limit. That's two drunk-driving arrests in three hours.
Oh, and according to reports, Abdullin's 4-year-old daughter was in the car at the time.
