Wisconsin Drunk Driving Victim Impact Panels

What is a Victim Impact Panel?

Attending a Victim Impact Panel (VIP) is another potential penalty for drunk driving in the State of Wisconsin. A VIP is a gathering of individuals who have had loved ones killed or seriously injured share their mental and emotional experiences with convicted drunk drivers. The goal of a VIP is to deter future drunk driving incidents by elucidating the dangers and consequences of drunk driving and the potential impact it can have on themselves and others.

How can I sign up for a VIP?

Victim Impact Panels are typically held twice a month and usually last 1-2 hours in length. The cost to attend a VIP can range from $10-50 dollars depending on the county you wish to attend it in. You can typically find when they are, where they are located, and how much they cost by contacting an Alcohol Assessment Facility within your county.
