A driver may not be the only one who ends up behind bars for drunk driving. Three years ago Washington enacted a law that requires a car to be towed and impounded if the driver is arrested for a DUI. Apparently, 2014 is shaping up to be a year with an exceptional number of cars impounded.
Some individuals may be wondering why such an extreme law was enacted in the first place. The law was originally made in response to an alleged drunk driver who drove her vehicle after being arrested but not booked and caused a serious wreck. Unfortunately, this means that even those who have a friend who can come pick up their vehicle will still have it impounded.
