Gov. Inslee and Bipartisan Group Urge Tougher DUI Laws
Gov. Jay Inslee and a bipartisan group of lawmakers have unveiled a plan would make changes to the state's impaired driving laws, including arrest on the first offense and mandatory jail time if offenders don't enroll in a sobriety program after a second arrest. Inslee said "There are no more free passes for those who choose to drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol." The measure announced Tuesday also would the prohibit people from purchasing alcohol for 10 years after a third conviction on drunken driving. The legislation comes in the wake of two recent fatal accidents. Inslee called the plan the "most aggressive, the most effective, the most ambitious program to reduce drunk driving on our roads."
