New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 12, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas Pag«2A HgrakS-Zgftung, New Braunfels, Texas Thursday, March 12,1987Drunk Continued (rom Page I namely multiple and aggravated driving-while-intoxicated offenders and those who register more than 0.25 blood alcohol levels during breathalyzer tests will be on the no-alcohol concept. “I feel like if they are repeat drunk drivers, why should I give them the opportunity to drink and drive? It's a tough system and I mean for it to be tough,” the county attorney said. In Texas, a person is considered legally drunk if a breathalyzer registers 0.10 or above. The program, which will be a one-year experimental deterrent to drunk driving, is a cooperative effort supported by the county attorney, county court-at-law judge and adult probation office. The unit will cost $468 for one year’s use and the installation cost is to be borne by the offender along with any court fines or shock jail time assessed and will not be a burden to county taxpayers. It can be installed in a car in about 30 minutes. “We are not going to lower any fines. You can pay your fine, install the device or go to jail for 30 to 60 days,” Reimer said, explaining the program will be part of the plea bargaining system. No one will be forced to install the device. “This is technology coming from the private sector to help the public,” said company representative Richard Freund, who said similar programs have been piloted in California, Ohio, Michigan and Maryland court systems. According to Reimer. law enforcement agencies will be notified of those probationers put on the system. State law allows county judges to use discretion in implementing such programs “Fortunately. we have a judge with the discretion to implement such sound measures,” Reimer said, who added that the program will be relatively easy to regulate in Comal County. “There will be some wrinkles to be worked out, but as long as there is some high technology available, why not use it," said County Court-at-Law Judge Ron Pritchard. Reinter said he expects IO to 12 probationers monthly will be put on the system, the first within the next 20 days. “It should be stressed that the Guardian program not be viewed as a panacea or replacement for punishment, such as jail time, but simply as one more tool in our efforts to protect the driving public,” Reimer said. "We are hopeful that the application of this new technology will provide effective on-site deterrence to DWI and safer roads in Comal County." Reimer said that even though sentences for DWI offenders have toughened since Pritchard took office at the beginning of the year, the system will further decrease DWI cases in the court. “It only takes one person to wipe out an entire family and if I have the opportunity to save even one life. I will do it,” Reimer said. Persons will be required to pay for the system in full at the time of installation. No payment plan is being considered. “We will work with probationers on their fines to help so as not to be a burden to low-income families.” Reimer said “We do feel protection for the public is more important than the inconvenience to a probationer.” At the end of the one-year trial period the data and cases will be reviewed and analyzed for impact on case loads and a determination will be made as to whether the program has contributed to road safety “Needless to say. if we were not optimistic, we would not implement the trial program.” said Reimer.ObituariesFrank O.

An official with TML has previously stated that insuring a private manager of a city-owned facility is not a common practice. In underwriting the city's liability policy, TML recommended numeorus safety improvements be made at the park, some of which have been completed. Michie received authority from council Feb. 23 to withdraw $42,000 from contingency to make improvements, of which $11,145 in improvements have been encumbered thus far, according to Budget Director Court Thieleman Michie said the proposals are similar to those being sought from private waste disposal firms for exclusive rights to sanitation collection in the city in that they are proposals and council will have the right to accept or refuse any and all submittals Proposers will recommend rental rates, either a flat fee, a percentage of gross receipts or any combination of entrance fees and capital improvements over an undetermined period.
