WSP targeting vehicles driving unsafely around big trucks

The Washington State Patrol (WSP) will be conducting emphasis patrols this week, keeping an eye out on highways and interstates for drivers of cars, SUVs and pickup trucks who are tailgating, failing to yield the right of way, speeding, cutting off truck drivers and driving aggressively.

The WSP campaign is called Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks (TACT) and the officers will conduct the patrols on I-5 from Seattle to Federal Way , I-90 from Seattle to North Bend, I-405 from Bellevue to Tukwila, SR-167 from SR-18 to I-405, and SR-18 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the times most car-truck accidents occur.

Too many drivers are not careful enough semi trucks and with a 8,000 pound difference between the two vehicles, the occupants of the smaller vehicle are more likely to suffer a serious injury or disability.

Semi Truck vs Passenger Vehicle Accident Claims

If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident involving a semi truck, 18-wheeler-or big rig, that was not your fault, you may be seeking help with your accident claim. Accidents involving big rigs are usually more complicated than other types of auto accident claims because often the driver of big rig is an independent contract who either leases their truck or drivers for a company. There may be multiple parties involved.
