The following Lackawanna and Pike County police agencies will conduct aggressive-driving enforcement activities as part of a regional coordinated enforcement on December 7 â??Scranton, South Abington Twp., Roaring Brook Twp., Archbald, Blakely, Eastern Pike Regional and the Pennsylvania State Police.
Enforcement agencies will be reminding motorists that holidays are a peak time for traffic crashes, but there are some common sense rules that you can follow to keep you and your family safe on the roads. First, buckle up and make sure everyone else does, too. Follow the speed limit and avoid other aggressive driving behaviors. Never drive impaired and avoid all distractions including cell phones.
The enforcement wave will run fro December 3 to 31, with 330 municipal police agencies and the Pennsylvania State Police participating. More than 380 roadways statewide will be targeted in this effort to reduce aggressive driving related crashes, injuries and deaths. Agencies will target motorists exhibiting aggressive-driving behaviors such as speeding and driving too fast for conditions. Enforcement details will also be looking for distracted drivers.
The aggressive-driving enforcement is a part of the Pennsylvania Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project and is funded by PennDOTâ??s statewide investment of $2.3 million in federal funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
