Throughout the summer, Baltimore County Police will continue to clamp down on aggressive drivers.

Aggressive drivers speed, weave in and out of lanes, tailgate and cause crashes. They do not obey stop signs, red lights and officers. Aggressive drivers drive on road shoulders, sidewalks and medians. They are a menace on the highway.

Officers will be out in force to stop this behavior by issuing tickets, running tags to see if the driver has other tickets or outstanding warrants. Those driving under the influence will be arrested as will others depending on the infraction.

Avoid the hassle. Be a considerate driver, be patient in traffic and don’t speed.

Be aware of motorcycles, bicyclists and pedestrians when out and about.

Safety is easy when you follow the rules.
