Washington troopers conducting unsecured load emphasis

Washington State Troopers will be conducting an unsecure load emphasis from Friday through June 20. 

Debris from unsecured loads on highways results in about 300 traffic crashes and 30 injuries every year in Washington. About 5 million pounds of litter come from unsecured cargo and debris blowing out of the pickup beds. 

Fines from littering and unsecured loads can range from $50 to $5,000.
