WSP targeting unsecured loads

WSP targeting unsecured loads

Spring cleaning season often means pickup loads to the dump but drivers better make sure their loads are secured or they could end up with a large fine.

The Washington State Patrol will conduct a statewide “Secure Your Load” emphasis from April 27, 2018 through April 29, 2018.

The purpose of the emphasis is to bring awareness to the importance of securing your load.

Penalties can range from a $228 citation all the way to criminal charges if property damage or injuries result from the unsecured load.

Last year, the WSP contacted 6,268 vehicles for failing to secure their load.
