Washington law prohibits anyone from drinking alcohol or possessing an open container while traveling in a motor vehicle. If you notice another individual drinking alcohol while operating a vehicle, you should immediately avoid that vehicle.
Though everyone makes mistakes, a DUI conviction can follow you throughout your life, making it difficult to drive as well receive certain job offers.
Washington lawmakers are considering a bill that would offer an alternative method of deterrence in dealing with repeat DUI offenders. Rather than requiring that repeat offenders obtain an ignition interlock device throughout the trial process, the bill would allow offenders to swear that they will not drive.
