    Default WA - 40 speeders caught on Highway 520 in 2 hours

    40 speeders caught on Highway 520 in 2 hours

    It took just two hours for state troopers to find 40 drivers going way too fast on Highway 520 Saturday.

    The tickets were written in a special two-hour emphasis-enforcement effort targeting aggressive drivers, said Trooper Jeff Merrill, public-information officer.

    The enforcement took place between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Saturday on Highway 520 in Redmond, with troopers stationed on entrance ramps and the Northeast 51st Street overpass. Of the 40 tickets written, 17 cited drivers for going at least 20 mph over the speed limit.

    The emphasis patrols are operated partly to respond to complaints made to an aggressive-driving Internet site run by the State Patrol, as well as about 1,000 calls made each month to 911 dispatchers. The King County area alone generated 478 complaints to the Web site in 2005; so far in 2006, 388 of the 745 complaints have come from King County, Merrill said.

    The State Patrol collects complaints of aggressive driving at

    Aggressive driving is defined by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as committing two or more moving violations that are likely to endanger other people or property, or a single violation that requires a driver to take defensive action.
