OLYMPIA — Snohomish County came in third place for drunken-driving arrests in this years Drive Hammered, Get Nailed campaign.
The emphasis patrols began Aug. 12 and wrapped up Sept. 6.
This year, Snohomish County troopers and police officers made 281 drunken-driving arrests, said Shelly Baldwin, a program manager with the Washington State Traffic Safety Commission.
Thats down a bit from last years 339 arrests during Drive Hammered, Get Nailed.
I hope its because theres fewer impaired drivers out there, she said.
Participating agencies included Snohomish County Sheriffs Office, Washington State Patrol and about eight local police departments.
This was a really big campaign, Baldwin said.
Now its time to start planning for holiday season emphasis patrols, she said.
