Drive hammered on this holiday, get nailed hard, police say
MARYSVILLE, Wash — Expect to see more law enforcement on the roads this Labor Day weekend. The Washington State Patrol will conduct emphasis patrols to crack down on aggressive, reckless drivers, and people driving under the influence.
The focus will be on a stretch of I-5 from south Snohomish County to north King County between mileposts 173 and 193. This area has been designated as one the high collision areas with all the events around north Puget Sound over the busy Labor Day weekend.
WSP says 70-80 troopers will be working in this specific area using several specialized teams in an effort to reduce collisions.
The emphasis patrols begin August 30th until September 9th.
