The Washington State Legislature has continued to tighten our DUI laws almost every legislative session for the past several years. Many people seem to have a hard time understanding why there have been such wide-sweeping changes to our DUI laws . One need look no further than the latest incident in Kent to understand why. Early Sunday a car was driven into an apartment building narrowly missing the sleeping resident. The apartment was left in shambles; the resident’s entertainment system was destroyed. Law enforcement took the driver into custody on suspicion of DUI; undoubtedly the driver will be facing DUI charges. Following the accident, a Kent building official ruled the apartment unit ‘unstable’, and the American Red Cross is helping the resident find somewhere else to live.
