Beginning this Sunday, May 12, the Indiana State Police will participating the the FMCSA’s Ticket Aggressive Cars and Trucks (TACT) campaign, which will run through Saturday, June 8th.
The program was designated to promote education about aggressive driving-related accidents and to reduce the number of crashes.
“Troopers will specifically look for motorists driving dangerously around semi trucks and other commercial motor vehicles. Some of the violations troopers will be concentrating on include: unsafe lane changes, failure to yield the right of way, following too closely and aggressive driving. In many crashes involving commercial motor vehicles, the crash is caused by non-commercial drivers operating in an unsafe manner,” Indiana State Police stated.
“The Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division would like to remind everyone that traffic safety is a continuing partnership between the general motoring public, the commercial transportation industry and law enforcement. Together, through safer driving practices, we can reduce crashes, fatalities and injuries,” said Captain Mike Eslinger, Commander of the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division.
