TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The Florida Highway Patrol has stepped up enforcement of aggressive driving in an new safety campaign called Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks (TACT).
The ticketing initiative runs until October 20 and is intended to educate drivers about the hazards they can pose to themselves and others because of their aggressive driving.
Troopers will be on the lookout for signs of aggressive driving such as speeding, tailgating and improper lane changes.
"The Florida Highway Patrol remains committed to saving lives and reducing the number of commercial vehicle crashes. We can all do our part in reducing traffic crashes by being cautious, patient and courteous while driving, especially around big trucks and buses," FHP Director Col. Gene Spaulding said in a statement.
