And it is official; Thursday Governor Inslee signed into law a measure to more closely monitor motorists who are repeatedly convicted of DUI.
As previously posted, under the bill: (1) drivers charged with a subsequent DUI face mandatory arrest and booking into jail, and the pleasure of installing an interlock device on any vehicle they own within five days of the charge being file; (2) Washington state will commence with a pilot program in three counties and two cities to conduct daily alcohol monitoring on a person convicted twice or more under the new DUI law; and (3) money will be raised and earmarked for ensuring offenders are prosecuted more quickly in the future.
