Area Police Target Aggressive Driver Behaviors

BOYERTOWN PA – Boyertown police officers, and others affiliated with more than 240 municipal agencies and state troopers, are participating in an “Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education” project on Pennsylvania highways that continues through Nov. 19 (2017; Sunday), the borough police department announced earlier this week on its Facebook page.

Their stated goal: “to reduce the number of aggressive driving-related crashes, injuries and deaths on roadways throughout the state.” The project is supported by state and federal grants.

The four-week program, which began Oct. 23, targets speeding, tailgating (following too closely), and driving right-passing left. But police also will watch for other unsafe driving behaviors, including driving too fast for conditions, careless driving, red-light running and any other aggressive driving actions.

The department also anticipates working with officers in neighboring municipalities in traffic enforcement zones, saturation patrols, speed enforcement details, work zone enforcement, and multi-jurisdictional patrols.

If you’re an offender, expect to be stopped and cited.
