WSP Increases DUI Patrols for St. Patrick’s Day

In a press release, the Washington State Patrol says a study “showed that in the last five years there is an average of 120 calls to 911 reporting poor driving and about 25 collisions during the four days surrounding St. Patrick’s Day,” according to Komo News.

WSP troopers have already made a few arrests Friday night, and urge party goes to arrange a safe way to get home before they start drinking.

The WSP plans to focus on areas with a history of DUI problems – 1-5 from State Route 518 in Tukwila to State Route 512 in Lakewood.
