DUI Numbers High This Month

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Washington Troopers are catching drunk drivers at a rapid rate. Troopers say that they think as the weather gets warmer, people are out later, and drinking later. They say that in the last week they have given out about 30.

Troopers say that with more travellers on the road, it would be very easy from someone driving under the influence to cause a serious accident. DUIs are the leading cause of death for people between the ages of 4 and 36.
