The focus for this 6-week enforcement Wave is speeding, work zone safety, distracted driving and keeping right-passing left. Motorists exhibiting other unsafe behaviors such as driving too fast for conditions, following too closely, or other aggressive actions will also be cited. Wave 2 coincides with National Distracted Driving Month (April) and National Work Zone Awareness Week (April 9-13).
Participating agencies will use Traffic Enforcement Zones, saturation patrols, speed enforcement details, corridor enforcement, work zone enforcement and multi-jurisdictional patrol strategies to identify and cite aggressive drivers.
The PA Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project wishes to thank participating law enforcement agencies for your commitment to traffic safety. The reduction of crashes, injuries and deaths on Pennsylvania roadways are due to your enforcement efforts.
