Delaware Police Target Aggressive Driving

June 8, 2010

State officials are warning motorists that police are cracking down on aggressive driving in Delaware.

The Delaware Office of Highway Safety says 11 state, county and municipal police agencies will conduct patrols this summer aimed at stopping aggressive drivers.

State police also will be conducting team enforcement operations each month in every county on roads where crashes related to aggressive driving have been a problem.

Aggressive driving includes speeding, failing to yield, tailgating, improper lane changes, and running red lights or stop signs.

Officials say aggressive driving behaviors are the leading cause of fatal crashes this year, responsible for almost 40 percent of the state’s 37 fatal crashes.
