Law enforcement agencies in Pacific County are calling the 30th Annual Rod Run to the End of the World a success, with no major incidents to report over the weekend of events.
The Rod Run has grown in the number of spectators over the past two decades. Approximately 760 classic vehicles and an estimated 8,000 people came out for the two day event.
Although the organizers have strict rules regarding alcohol on the grounds of the event, often problems occur after the festivities wrap up for the day and spectators gather along the streets of Long Beach to view the classic cars once again.
This year, local law enforcement included the Pacific County Sheriff’s Office, Long Beach Police Department, and Washington State Patrol. Officers made over 330 traffic stops for traffic violations. 51 speeding tickets, 10 DUI arrests, and over a dozen other minor infractions were given out.
There were no major traffic incidents or collisions reported.
