Dave Hey is one of 11,000 drivers pulled over for speeding in the county in the last year -- nabbed for going 76 in a 60.
"I was trying to go around a car and I went too fast," he said.
The campaign is part of a year-long effort to crack down on speeders in Snohomish County -- aimed at cutting down on violent crashes.
Based off of data collected by local agencies, the Washington State Patrol found that speeding was particularly bad on I-5 north of Everett and on I-405 north of Canyon Park.
One third of all traffic stops were on a stretch of I-5 near the Everett scales.
"We're not just kind of willy-nilly going out and working speed wherever," said trooper Kirk Rudeen.
Troopers attributes a 41 percent drop in fatal crashes directly to the crackdown. They say it's so successful, other counties across the country are imitating it -- whether drivers here like it or not.
"I agree with what they're doing," Hey said. "For me, I feel I was an unfortunate victim of circumstance."
Although the program is a year old, they're not stopping anytime soon.
