HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Municipal police departments and state police are cracking down on aggressive drivers in Pennsylvania.

PennDOT’s Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project aims to reduce the number of aggressive-driving related crashes.

Police began the focus on aggressive driving last Monday and will continue the initiative through Nov. 20.

Aggressive drivers stopped by police during this time will receive a ticket.

Last year, the effort resulted in police around the state writing over 58,000 aggressive-driving related citations. There were also 376 felony arrests, 203 DUI-related arrests and 120 fugitive arrests.

There are over 205 agencies participating in the aggressive-driving enforcement initiative across Pennsylvania.
