Starting March 8, additional Washington State Patrol troopers will be on patrol to ensure safe travel during Washington State University’s (WSU) Spring Break.  Students should expect to see increased presence on State Route 26 and State Route 195.

Troopers will be focusing on collision causing violations such as speeding, unsafe passing, distracted driving as well as impaired driving

Motorists should always be prepared for changing road and weather conditions.  Road and weather conditions are available by downloading the mobile app from Washington State Department of Transportation or by calling 511.

Students who become drowsy while driving across the state should stop and rest.  Drowsy driving crashes are extremely dangerous and can often be fatal.

Troopers also recommend that you make sure your vehicle is prepared for travel before you head out on the road.  Proper vehicle maintenance, including checking your fluids and tires along with having extra clothing, food and water on hand is a good idea in case of an emergency.

The WSP will be working hard throughout the week to ensure everyone heading to and from Pullman has a safe and enjoyable spring break.
