Olympia -- Last year, the Washington State Patrol (WSP) investigated over 11,000 collisions statewide during the winter months.  40 of those were fatality collisions and 74 were serious injury collisions. Our goal is to make people safe on Washington roadways.

The Washington State Patrol (WSP) wants to share some roadside safety tips and to remind drivers to plan ahead when road and weather conditions are not ideal.
