Local police conduct targeted aggressive-driving enforcement
LEWISTOWN–The Mifflin County Regional Police Department joined the Pennsylvania State Police and more than 200 municipal police agencies to conduct targeted aggressive-driving enforcement from Oct. 21 through Nov. 17.
Regional Officers made 63 traffic stops while working this special enforcement program. Forty-seven aggressive-driving related citations were issued during the enforcement period as well as one arrest for a drug law violation.
As part of the Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project, this enforcement wave focused on school bus safety, the Steer Clear law, tailgating, and speeding. Motorists exhibiting other unsafe behaviors such as driving too fast for conditions, following too closely, or other aggressive actions were also cited.
The enforcement was part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project and is funded by part of the department’s investment of federal funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
