Emphasis DUI Patrols Next Week

The Washington State Department of Transportation, in collaboration with state law enforcement agencies, by way of the state’s strategic highway safety plan – ‘target zero’, will again be emphasizing DUI patrols. Next week four local law enforcement agencies (the Washington State Patrol, the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office, the Yelm Police Department, and the Olympia Police Department) hope to cut down on the number of DUI’s with a two day (8/25 and 8/26) emphasis patrol in their respective jurisdictions. Target Zero aims to eliminate all traffic related deaths in Washington State by the year 2030. The hope is that by initiating and publicizing these patrols people will be more inclined to take a cab, call Uber or have a designated driver if they plan to drink or do drugs.

If you (or a loved one) have been arrested and cited for DUI in Washington State you should immediately seek the assistance of a Seattle DUI lawyer. A qualified and respected Seattle DUI attorney, among other things, can quite possibly save you thousands of dollars in court and insurance fees, extent of loss of privilege to drive and amount of jail time to be served. Washington traffic laws are far too complicated for any ol’ attorney to handle. Be smart … hire a qualified and skilled Seattle DUI attorney when arrested for an alcohol and/or a drug related DUI in Washington State.
