WASHTUCNA — Expect to see more Washington State Patrol troopers on the road from March 9-19.

The agency will be operating its Washington State University spring break emphasis in Spokane, Whitman, Grant, Kittitas and Adams counties as students leave and return to Pullman.

The emphasis will focus on U.S. Highways 195 and 395, State Highway 26 and Interstate 90.

Troopers will be focusing excessive speed, distracted driving and impaired driving during the emphasis.

“Our primary mission is to ensure that everyone enjoys safe travels during Spring Break,” State Patrol District 4 Cmdr. Capt. Jeff Otis said.
