State and local police are working together for the next three weeks to bring down the law on aggressive drivers.

More than 80 police departments are coordinating for the aggressive driving enforcement wave through November 14. Among them are ten departments from Lower Bucks.

Last year more than 5,600 crashes were the result of aggressive driving, according to PA State Police. These accidents left 91 people dead and over 400 seriously injured.

During this three week crackdown, police are focusing on certain behaviors on the road including speeding and tailgating. They will also prioritize upholding the state’s Move Over Law and school bus safety.

Other aggressive driving behaviors include running stop signs or red lights, weaving in traffic, and driving too fast for conditions.

PA State Police recommends certain tips for motorists encountering aggressive drivers on the roadways:

  • Get out of their way and don’t challenge them.
  • Stay relaxed, avoid eye contact, and ignore rude gestures.
  • Don’t block the passing lane if you are driving slower than most of the traffic.

  • Bensalem Township
  • Bristol Township
  • Falls Township
  • Lower Southampton Township
  • Middletown Township
