DUI crackdowns happening state-wide

DUI-Defense

SEATTLE — Police are swarming the roads in what is being called an intense crackdown on impaired drivers.

The Washington State Patrol calls the beginning of summer the 100 deadliest days on our roadways.

Local and state police are on the hunt for drunk drivers between now and July 7.

“This is a spike in our season when people are making the choice to drink and drive, we’re out here to discourage that,” Trooper Karim Boukabou said.

Police said drivers under the .08 legal limit can still be locked up if they suspect drivers are impaired.

    Now, it would be nice if the courts assisted the police in their efforts by ceasing
    the catch and release policy for DUI drivers.
