Video: State patrol troopers led on literal wild goose chase

Each day, our traffic engineers monitor traffic through the 440 cameras perched high above Puget Sound roadways. They look for collisions, disabled vehicles, dangerous litter (like bumpers or hubcaps) that could cause collisions or other problems. They also watch traffic flow to determine when to activate systems like Smarter Highways.

It was during a routine traffic check when they found Mother Goose and her five goslings booking down the shoulder. Washington State Patrol spotted them too and herded them off at the next exit. Not only do we want them to make it through spring, but we also want to make sure they don't wander in front of your car. Can you imagine how bad you'd feel if you hit one?
