Washington Authorities Track Where DUI Suspects Drink

Posted by Mark Garka | Apr 29, 2016 | 0 Comments

When Washington drivers are arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, where are they coming from? Over the last few years, Washington authorities have started to compile a database of venues where suspected DUI offenders were drinking just before they were pulled over by law enforcement.

As reports, the state Liquor and Cannabis Board has been compiling this data of destinations DUI suspects say they last were before being arrested since 2012. This information is volunteered by drivers, recorded by local law enforcement departments, and then collected by the state police.

Here are some of the most common DUI suspect destinations (2012-2015):

  • O'Finnigan's Pub in Everett (68 DUI stops)
  • Tulalip Resort Casino (62 DUI stops)
  • Juanita Pub in Kirkland (67 DUI stops)
  • Danny's Midway Pub and Grill in Smokey Point (62 DUI stops)
  • Safeco Field in Seattle (66 DUI stops)
  • Snoqualmie Casino (80 DUI stops)
  • The Parlor in Bellevue (62 DUI stops)

You can see a complete map of the 25 most frequented bars by DUI suspects in the last three years here.

Innocent Until Proven Guilty

Remember: even if your blood alcohol concentration test is over the limit, you are not yet guilty of driving under the influence-- you are only suspected. Acquittals, reductions, and dismissals are still possible, but only if your case is reviewed by a proven Snohomish County DUI defense lawyer who knows our state's DUI laws and procedures.

I am a former prosecutor who has an intimate understanding of how our state pursues DUI convictions and what my clients need to put their charges behind them as swiftly as possible.
