Aggressively targeting aggressive driving

Starting this Sunday, Idaho law enforcement agencies will launch an enforcement campaign against aggressive driving, which contributes to more than half of all car crashes in the state. The campaign will run June 10-23, and then again from July 15-28. “More than 36,000 people in Idaho are involved in crashes caused by aggressive driving each year,” said Margaret Goertz, aggressive driving program coordinator with ITD's Office of Highway Operations and Safety.

Officers will be going after drivers who speed, drive too fast for conditions, follow too closely, fail to yield right-of-way, pass stop signs and disregard signals. They’ll also target seatbelt violators. Now you know.
