Washington State Patrol Emphasis During The Holidays

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - With so many people traveling for the holidays the Washington State Patrol is keeping a close eye on drivers.

They're looking for speeders, drunk drivers and anyone violating the law in a statewide emphasis.

Over the holidays troopers said there will be extra troopers on the roads.

They encourage everyone to get a designated driver if they plan on drinking and say reducing the number of DUI related accidents is their top priority.

Troopers report that drunk drivers are involved in 25 percent of the fatal collisions.
