An additional 183 citations for unsafe driving were issued including driving aggressively or while suspended or, in the case of teenagers, in violation of intermediate driver’s license restrictions.

The Tacoma Daily Index reported that the special emphasis began at 8 a.m. when many of the roads had ice on them, also focused on stopping drivers who were driving too fast for the conditions.

The Washington Traffic Safety Commission conduced a speed reduction project on the same roads in 2006 and 2007. This was done in conjunction with the task force in which almost 15,000 citations were issued and, as a result, speed was reduced as much as 70 per cent for people going at least 11 miles over the limit.
