Washington State Police Uses Unmarked 18-Wheeler to Ticket Drivers

July 13, 2005

OLYMPIA, WA – Washington State Police began using an unmarked police 18-wheeler truck and a spotter helicopter in an effort to ticket motorists on the I-5 freeway. The idea is to follow the model of the "Click it or Ticket" campaign and issue as many tickets as possible to aggressive drivers in smaller vehicles.A $600,000 grant from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is funding the effort. NHTSA hopes to study the performance of the Washington program in the hopes of deploying it nationwide.
