State police begin crackdown on speeding, aggressive driving

You might wanna slow down for the next week or so. It could cost you.

State Police have announced they’ll be increasing the penalties for speeding and aggressive driving starting Thursday, April 17 through Thursday, April 24.

During the one-week crackdown period, fines for speeding and aggressive driving can reach nearly $1,000 and add up to 11 points on a driver’s license, enough to allow the DMV to suspend or revoke your license for a month.

State troopers will be targeting aggressive driving behaviors including speeding, tailgating and cellphone use.

During the last campaign from August 10, 2013 to August 17, 2013, state police issued more than 9,600 tickets.

Aggressive driving behaviors State Troopers will be targeting include:
· Excessive Speed
· Frequent or Unsafe Lane Changes
· Failure to Signal
· Tailgating
· Failure to Yield the Right of Way
· Disregarding Traffic Controls
· Impaired Driving
· Cell phone/electronic device use
