If you’re in the habit of speeding, tailgating or failing to fully stop at stop signs on Lower Saucon Township roads, beware. The township police department has launched a new aggressive driving enforcement initiative that will continue through April 29.
In a news release Tuesday, police said 235 municipal agencies are participating in the campaign statewide, with the goal of reducing the number of aggressive driving-related crashes, injuries and deaths.
“Any aggressive driver stopped by police will receive a citation,” it said.
This initiative will specifically focus on speeding, work zone safety violations and adherence to the “keep right, pass left” law. Other aberrant motorist behaviors police will be looking for include driving too fast for conditions and following other drivers too closely.
During a similar campaign last year, police statewide issued more than 44,000 aggressive driving citations, including 27,017 for speeding.
The enforcement initiative is part of the Pennsylvania Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project and is funded by PennDOT and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
