The Washington State Patrol has deployed seven airplanes for CMV enforcement.
The planes are equipped with a FLIR Safire 1080 HDc camera with night vision.
On Thursday, the planes focused on I-5 in Marysville and Arlington. In just a few short hours, the airplanes were responsible for 10 truck and 3 car stops.
Troopers say they’re looking for vehicles following too closely, speeding and other dangerous driving habits.
According to King 5, “Washington State Patrol says there have been nine fatal accidents involving big rigs; in eight of those accidents the car’s driver was found at fault.”
