This week the Washington State Patrol is looking for tailgaters. Drivers following too close to the vehicle in front of them are more likely to get an infraction ticket during this emphasis patrol. The standard ticket penalty is $136.00. But if the driver causes an accident for following too close, then then penalty will be $187.00. The WSP said it investigated over 9,500 collisions caused by following too close last year and hope with this emphasis patrol they can drastically bring that number down this year.
