York Area Regional Police Department is one of hundreds of police agencies across the state participating in enforcement activities as part of the Pennsylvania Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project, according to a departmental news release.
From March 24 to May 4 — the first wave of the campaign — regional officers will target aggressive drivers on Routes 74 and 24, as well as on High Street in Red Lion and on Craley and Springwood roads in Windsor and York townships, police said. All aggressive drivers pulled over by officers will be ticketed, police said.
State police and more than 330 municipal police departments in Pennsylvania are participating in the project, police said.
During last year's statewide campaign, officers wrote more than 116,000 citations for aggressive driving-related infractions, including nearly 55,000 for speeding and about 14,500 for ignoring traffic-control signals and devices, police said.
The aggressive-driving enforcement campaign is funded by the state Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
