The Wilkes-Barre City Police Department will join the Pennsylvania State Police and over 300 municipal agencies to conduct a targeted aggressive driving enforcement wave through Sunday, April 24.
The goal of targeted enforcement is to reduce the number of aggressive driving-related crashes, injuries and deaths on the roadways throughout the state. Any aggressive driver stopped by police will receive a ticket.
The enforcement wave will focus on distracted driving, speeding and work zone awareness. Motorists exhibiting other unsafe behaviors including driving too fast for conditions or following too closely will also be cited.
The enforcement is part of Pennsylvania’s Highway Safety Program and is funded in part by PennDOT’s receipt of federal funds from the National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA).
