Springettsbury Township Police will be one of more than 330 municipal police departments across the state to participate in an aggressive-driving enforcement detail that starts July 7.

Township police said they will focus on Route 30 drivers running red lights, but other aggressive driving, such as speeding and tailgating, also will be targeted.

Any aggressive driver stopped by police will be ticketed, Springettsbury Township Police said in a news release.

The detail runs from July 7 to Aug. 31, police said.

Springettsbury Township Police participated in last year's detail, during which police wrote more than 116,000 aggressive driving-related citations statewide. They included nearly 55,000 speeding tickets, according to police.

The detail is part of the Pennsylvania Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project and is funded in part by funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distributed by the state Department of Education.
