Call 911 If You Observe Erratic or Dangerous Driving

Wenatchee -- The Washington State Patrol has seen an increase in impaired driving incidents during daytime hours in Chelan and Douglas Counties. The Washington State Patrol wants to remind motorists that if they see erratic or dangerous driving, to call 911.

Motorists should be prepared to give location, direction of travel and a good description of the vehicle, its driver and license plate if it can be obtained safely. If the vehicle is driving in a dangerous manner, stay clear and give as accurate of a description as possible from a safe distance.

Impaired and/or distracted drivers can be on the roads at all hours day and night, so please be aware of your surroundings. Be sure to fasten your seatbelt to give yourself the best chance of surviving and minimizing injuries from an unexpected collision.
