KSP to begin new campaign targeting aggressive driving

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- Kentucky State Police will begin a new, two-week statewide initiative on Monday to target aggressive driving.

The Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks Blitz will target drivers of both passenger cars and commercial vehicles, who exhibit aggressive behaviors such as improper lanes changes, speeding, following too closely, not leaving enough space to pass and failure to yield the right-of-way.

In 2019, there were 6,147 crashes involving commercial trucks on Kentucky roadways resulting in 88 deaths.

The agency will use social media, radio and other forms of public outreach to educate the public on the dangers of aggressive driving.
