Washington state troopers target truckers

| 3/5/2002

The Washington State Patrol has added more than 30 specially trained troopers throughout the state to track truckers. The troopers are looking for truckers who speed, drive aggressively, follow too closely and use the left lane of a freeway where prohibited. The troopers, members of the state's Commercial Vehicle Division, each have about $25,000 worth of equipment, including a set of portable scales for weighing trucks.
