Description

Halsne found that Washington drivers with severe medical impairments, such as diabetes, were again and again given immunity following serious auto accidents. Washington law does not restrict licenses of drivers who have a long history of blackouts. KIRO-TV profiled a diabetic who sent a total of 9 innocent victims to the hospital in 3 car wrecks. KIRO found eight-thousand medically impaired drivers are allowed to keep their licenses year after year.
