Any aggressive driver stopped by police will receive a ticket.

Additionally, the enforcement brought about 376 felony arrests, 203 DUI related arrests and 120 fugitive arrests.

The aggressive-driving enforcement is a part of PennDOT’s Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project and is funded by PennDOT’s statewide distribution of National Highway Traffic Safety Administration funds. Please visit www.penndot.gov/safety for more information.
