KSP: 3-week campaign will target aggressive drivers
By Sergeant Jason Morris
Frankfort, KY - The KSP Commercial Vehicle Enforcement (CVE) Division announced the start of a three-week statewide enforcement blitz targeting aggressive driving behaviors. The Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks (TACT) Campaign targets drivers (both passenger car and commercial vehicle) who exhibit dangerous driving behaviors. These include improper lanes changes, following too closely, not leaving enough space to pass and excessive speed.
Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division Director Major Nathan Day offered tips to drivers of both passenger cars and commercial trucks.
"At the end of the day, all of us want to make it home safely to our families," says Day. "Sometimes it's as simple as being willing to be the driver who does the 'right thing' when others are displaying the wrong behavior."
Day says the best defense against an aggressive driver is a seat belt and plenty of patience. "You can't control what other drivers are doing but you can safeguard yourself and your passengers by always buckling up," adds Day. "Be a courteous driver and don't fall into the category of an aggressive driver."
Aggressive driving is defined as any behind-the-wheel behavior that places another person in danger through willful action without regard to safety.
KSP provides the following tips to avoid being an aggressive driver:
TACT enforcement and public information efforts are funded by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
