Beginning tomorrow, Mon., Sept. 26, law enforcement officers from surrounding agencies will join our deputies in conducting emphasis patrols on the Pacific Ave/Mountain Hwy corridor. We’ll be targeting high-risk behaviors along the highway in an effort to prevent collisions and reduce traffic-related injuries and deaths.
We want to thank the Washington State Patrol and the Lakewood and Puyallup Police Departments for participating in this emphasis, which is made possible through a grant from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission. The Washington State Department of Transportation is also making safety improvements to the SR-7 corridor.
Please remember to always wear your seatbelt, watch your speed, limit distractions, and watch for pedestrians and bicyclists.
