The Washington State Patrol began a safety awareness program on U.S. 2 and Highway 522. Motorists were asked to drive with headlights on as a safety measure, said dispatcher Suzanne Ney of the Everett State Patrol office. She said that black and yellow signs urging headlight use would be posted on the roads.

Working there were Brent Lovell, John Engel, Carl Hanson, Mark Herald, Rod Bly, Fran Clarke, Charles Moore, Randy Utt, Doug Lauer, George Carberry, Kris Hausmann, Pam Moore, Earl McMurray, George McDonnell, Tim Martin and Jim Punteney.
