York County police departments to target aggressive drivers

Pennsylvania's Steer Clear law requires drivers to move at least one lane away from emergency responders on the side of the highway. Drivers who can't move over must, by law, slow down.

Several York County law enforcement agencies will be cracking down on aggressive drivers as part of a statewide enforcement wave.

The Center for Traffic Safety said in a news release that the aggressive driving enforcement started Monday, Oct. 21, and will continue through Nov. 17.

The initiative is part of the Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project, which is aimed at reducing the number of aggressive driving-related crashes, injuries and deaths, according to the release.

Those stopped by police for driving aggressively will be ticketed, the release states.

The following York County departments are participating in the enforcement: Carroll Township, Fairview Township, Hanover, Hellam Township, Lower Windsor Township, Newberry Township, Northeastern Regional, Northern York County Regional, Penn Township, Spring Garden Township, Springettsbury Township, West Manchester Township, West Manheim Township, York Area Regional Police and York City Police.

State police are involved as well.
