TO REPORT AN AGGRESSIVE DRIVER
When you observe an aggressive driver that is putting other motorists at risk, avoid the aggressive driver by getting out of the way, don’t make eye contact or give an indication of disapproval of their driving actions. Contact 911 to report the offense to your local police or the PA. State Police. Give the dispatcher the following information: vehicle description, license plate number, location and direction of travel, driver description, and the aggressive driving behavior being demonstrated.
Do not attempt to follow or pursue the vehicle. You or a passenger may call the police. But, if you use a cell phone, pull over to a safe location.

Wave 2 coincides with National Distracted Driving Month (April) and National Work Zone Awareness Week (April 11th-15th).
Participating Agencies will use Traffic Enforcement Zones, Saturation Patrols, Speed Enforcement Details, Corridor Enforcement, Work Zone Enforcement and Multi-Jurisdictional Patrol strategies to identify and cite aggressive drivers.
The PA Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project would like to thank all participating Police Agencies for their commitment to traffic safety. These efforts continue to contribute to the reduction of crashes, injuries and deaths on Pennsylvania roadways.
