In Washington, a woman was arrested last Saturday after failing a roadside alcohol sobriety test with a blood alcohol level of .25 percent. She had four children in the car ranging from a toddler to a teenager. In addition to a packed vehicle of passengers she was towing a U-Haul trailer. She was placed in jail and faces a DUII charge and four charges of child endangerment.
The Fourth of July holiday is one of the rare holidays where people are more likely to say “be safe from fire” than the traditional “drive safely”. Leave it to the irresponsible people to keep drunk driving a full year round danger risk. This woman failed to realize that she put a total of five people in danger in her own car even if she never was a risk to anyone else on the road.
