State Patrol to conduct emphasis patrol this week

The Washington State Patrol will conduct a pre-Halloween emphasis patrol through the “King County Metro Zone” Wednesday, Oct. 23, through Saturday, Oct. 26. The Metro Zone is the area on Interstate 5 between Ravenna (Seattle) and Interurban (Tukwila). 

Troopers are anticipating several social functions that could increase the amount of impaired drivers in the Seattle area due to Halloween celebrations. 

Last year’s patrol efforts saw an 81-percent increase in DUI (driving under the influence) arrests and a 60-percent increase in traffic stops compared to the year before. This helped in having no traffic collision fatalities in the area in 2012. 

The emphasis patrols will occur daily from noon to 4 a.m., using marked and unmarked patrol vehicles.
