DUI patrol in Shoreline Friday

Friday, May 5, 2017

The City of Shoreline is teaming up with WSP, Washington State liquor and Cannabis Board, and King County Sheriff’s Office unincorporated deputies on a DUI directed patrol.

It is occurring Friday May 5th and the primary area of focus is Shoreline.

It is the project of WIDAC, a state funded group through the Target Zero program. The Washington Impaired Driving Advisory Council (WIDAC)

Impaired driving is a leading factor in Washington traffic deaths. WIDAC is working with other state agencies to keep alcohol- and drug-impaired drivers off the roads.

Washington wants to increase impaired driving arrests, improve prosecution, set up more DUI courts, and promote the use of ignition-interlock devices.

In Washington state, impaired driving is defined as:

  • driving while under the influence of drugs,
  • driving while impaired by alcohol, or
  • driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 percent or above.
