There’s a new law on the books in Washington as of tonight that says if somebody's pulled over for DUI; their car is automatically impounded for twelve hours. Sgt. JJ Gundermann says the law's designed to prevent a repeat of a case in Whatcom County a few years ago, where a person was pulled over and arrested for DUI, and after being released, took a taxi home, got a set of car keys, picked up the car where it was left and seriously injured another person. Now the car will be held for 12 hours, although if it's owned by somebody other than the person arrested, then the owner can retrieve it earlier.
