Thursday Memo: DUI interlocks poll … Man hit by train … Weekend hopes

Drunks, driving and interlock devices: If someone convicted of DUI agrees not to drive, he can’t be forced to install an ignition interlock device in his car. The device won’t allow the car to be started if it senses that the driver has alcohol on his breath. Did you know those convicted of DUI can’t be forced to install the devices? Vote in our poll.

Man hit by train in Seattle this morning: The incident occurred just south of the Magnolia bridge, according to the Seattle Fire Department. The man, believed to be in his 60s, was in critical condition as he was being taken to Harborview.

Hot weather coming: Well, maybe. We’re still crossing our fingers for highs in the upper 60s by Sunday. The forecast.

Glad we weren’t caught in this: 17-mile backup on northbound I-5: Boeing Field to Shoreline. Were you? What’s interesting is that it wasn’t one thing, but several smaller incidents that caused this mess.
