A Proud Moment

For those of you who will soon be Washington state residents:

It's a look that lead-foot drivers know all too well: the crisp black bow tie and blue "Smokey Bear" hat of a Washington State Patrol trooper.

And according to a national trade group, the outfits are the best-looking state police uniforms in the country.
