🚨Any aggressive driver stopped by police will receive a ticket

🚨80 local police departments are participating


If you think there's more drivers being pulled over in the next month you're probably right.

Police departments in Bucks and Montgomery counties will be part of a statewide coordinated aggressive driving campaign that started Friday and rund through the end of April. Enforcement zones, saturation patrols, speed enforcement details, corridor enforcement, work zone enforcement, and multi-jurisdictional patrol strategies will all be used to find and ticket aggressive drivers.

According to PennDOT during the campaign, any aggressive driver stopped by police will receive a ticket. More than 80 municpal departments in the Philadelphia area are participating.

The program is funded by part of PennDOT's investment of federal funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
