Seattle woman dies in DUI accident

Link impoundment and interlocks

Today my wife and I learned that a friend of ours, Morgan Williams, was the latest victim of another apparently drunken driver [“DUI again? Wrong-way driver kills Seattle woman,” page one, April 5]. This past week we had been discussing the earlier tragic deaths caused by a drunken driver in Seattle on March 25, and agreed the law needs to be changed to keep drunken drivers off the road.

While Washington has toughened its DUI laws to mandate vehicle impounding and provide for ignition interlocks, the weakness is the lack of a link between the two. A driver facing strong DUI evidence should face impoundment, a speedy trial, and if convicted, a requirement for an installed interlock prior to being allowed custody of the car.
