“...In reality, it’s a traffic violation....”

Another Clinton-era guy explores what the meaning of "is" is...

Sid Blumenthal's lawyer, commenting on the "aggravated DWI" charge Blumenthal received after being observed at more than twice the legal speed limit, and having failed a field sobriety test...

“In reality, it’s a traffic violation,” Mello said, noting that the more serious “aggravated” DWI charge is due to the alleged speeding, not “degree of intoxication.”

Interesting defense: Speeding while drunk is only speeding. Being drunk (or "degree of intoxication", if you will) was another issue.
