Planning an Aggressive Driver Enforcement Program

Law enforcement agencies have been developing new, ambitious enforcement methods to address the problem of aggressive driving.

The programs discussed in this publication were created, designed and developed by line officers. These officers are familiar with their "beats." They know the problem areas, they know the time of day to expect problems and they are familiar with what it takes to resolve a problem. In each case, law enforcement administrators were willing to listen to the line officer and work together to develop a program that would work. By allowing patrol officers to become involved in the solution, there was greater participation and commitment to the program.
