LAWRENCE TOWNSHIP – Lawrence Township police will join the Pennsylvania State Police and more than 206 municipal agencies to conduct a targeted aggressive driving enforcement waive through Aug. 27. As part of the Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project, police will aim to reduce the number of aggressive driving-related crashes, injuries and deaths on roadways throughout the commonwealth. Any aggressive driver stopped by police will receive a ticket. Police will focus on drivers who are running red lights, failing to steer clear, tailgating and speeding. Drivers who are exhibiting other unsafe behaviors, such as driving too fast for conditions, following too closely or others will also be cited for their actions. Municipal police who participated in last year’s initiative wrote 45,136 aggressive driving-related citations, including 28,235 for speeding. Failing to stop for red lights and stop signs was the second most common offense, resulting in 2,807 citations. Additionally, police made 37 felony arrests, apprehended 61 fugitives, made 132 impaired driving arrests and issued 1,655 occupant protection citations. The aggressive driving enforcement is a part of the Pennsylvania Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project.

Pennsylvania's new "Ride on Red" law went into effect Sunday, but what does it mean? Simply put, if the traffic signal's vehicle-detection system fails to recognize a vehicle (car, bicycle, motorcycle or otherwise), the vehicle may proceed with caution as if it were a stop sign. Important: This does not mean you can treat any red light as a stop sign — it must be malfunctioning. For the actual law, read Pennsylvania Title 75 Section 3112(c) → #RideOnRed #Safety #Motorcycles
