Fairview Township Police Are Targeting Aggressive Drivers
March 29, 2018
The Fairview Township Police Department is participating in the Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project. This is a program that provides funding to local police agencies and the state police to engage in targeted traffic enforcement activities. It is funded through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT). Wave two of this project started on March 19 and runs through April 29, 2018.
Municipalities are selected to participate in this program based on traffic crash statistics. Specifically, municipalities that have the highest rate of traffic crashes tied to aggressive driving behaviors. Some of these violations include speeding, following too closely, stop sign violations, red light violations and illegal passing. Residents can expect to see increased traffic enforcement throughout the township during this period of time.
The Fairview Township Police Department participates in this program with the goal of decreasing the number of traffic crashes on township roads that lead to injury and death. Anybody who would like additional information on driver safety topics may click here for resources provided by PennDOT.
