OLYMPIA — Drivers who are required to pass a breath test before they get behind the wheel won’t get away with having someone else blow in the ignition interlock device.
Starting with the new year the devices will snap a picture every time the machine is used. The Washington State Patrol says drivers who try to fool the machines will lose their license.
Interlocks are required on the vehicles whose drivers have been caught driving impaired. The machine requires a legal breath sample before the car starts. Some drivers have asked friends, relatives or children to blow in the device for them.
