Boyertown Police receives Special Aggressive Driving Enforcement funding, seek to address local aggressive-driving concerns

The Boyertown Police Department is one of 109 municipal police agencies in Pennsylvania that was awarded a special grant to address local aggressive-driving concerns.

This Special Aggressive Driving Enforcement effort began Feb. 13 and will run until Sept. 14 on segments of roadway where municipal police have identified aggressive driving as a major traffic safety issue.

The enforcement will complement other statewide aggressive-driving enforcement waves, also funded by federal funds through PennDot, which are scheduled to begin March 24 to May 4 and July 7 to Aug. 31.

Pennsylvania State Police Troop L and municipal police from Amity, Bern Township, Boyertown, Central Berks, Colebrookdale, Douglass, Exeter, Fleetwood, Hamburg, Muhlenberg, Northern Berks, Reading, Robeson, Sinking Spring, Spring, Tulpehocken, West Reading, and Wyomissing will be joining over 330 municipal police agencies and the Pennsylvania State Police to reduce the number of Aggressive Driving related crashes, injuries and deaths on 435 roadways throughout the State.

The focus for this enforcement wave will be on Distracted Driving, Speeding and Work Zone Safety. Motorists exhibiting other unsafe driving behaviors such as; driving too fast for conditions, following too closely, careless driving, red light running and any other aggressive driving actions will be stopped and cited.
