TARGETING AGGRESSIVE DRIVING
Aggressive driving such as speeding, tailgating and running red lights are among the greatest threats people face on the roads, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
On Wednesday, PennDOT representatives and local police officers joined forces in an aggressive driving enforcement campaign at routes 119 and 56 in Homer City. The statewide initiative will use wireless infrared speed detection devices, electronic speed display boards and other strategies with the goal of stopping aggressive drivers and reducing crashes.
Helping launch the local effort were, from left, Jay Ofsanik, a PennDOT safety press officer; Cpl. Anthony Jellison and Chief Louis Sacco, of the Homer City Police Department; state police Trooper John Matchik; and Indiana County District Attorney Patrick Dougherty.
