Dorn drives after DUI thanks to breath-test device

Associated Press
 

OLYMPIA — State schools Superintendent Randy Dorn received an automatic 90-day driver’s license suspension when he pleaded guilty last month to drunken driving.

But that doesn’t mean he can’t drive.

The Olympian reports that using an interlock ignition device allows Dorn — and any other DUI convict — to drive under a 90-day special license.

The device tests the driver’s breath and won’t allow the car to start if the driver has been drinking.
