West Richland Police would like to remind you what happens when you drink and drive. It's fun to 'get a little sideways' or 'get your swerve on' but not behind the wheel. Wahington State has one of the highest rates of fatalities in the nation when it comes to DUI's. Those that survive the drive end up with an average cost of over $2300 for a DUI, including the fine, insurance premium increases and lost wages.
