Drivers often recognize that various behaviors can lead to a collision, from driving over the speed limit to getting in the car after drinking too much or failing to stop at a sign. While these are all serious problems that cause many accidents each year, there are many other reasons why motor vehicle collisions keep happening. In fact, some accidents are caused by factors that are less common and not always given as much attention. For example, there are a number of ways in which playing music in a vehicle can cause a crash.
Every arrest for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in Washington State carries the potential for license suspension/revocation. Suspensions or revocations can occur based upon convictions in court or even through a separate administrative process within the Department of Licensing (DOL). When a driver has been suspended or revoked due to a DUI conviction or the separate administrative process the DOL can issue an Ignition Interlock License (IIL). Having the Ignition Interlock Device (IID) installed in a car is not the same as DOL issuing an IIL. Before taking any action toward obtaining an IIL it is important to determine eligibility and to verify any possible restrictions by contacting DOL at 360-902-3900.
