MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Florida Highway Patrol plans to go after dangerous and target aggressive car and truck drivers at the end of this month.
From February 27 through February 29th, troopers will be ticketing drivers who follow too closely, make unsafe lane changes or speed. According to the FHP, drivers’ actions account for 88 percent of the crashes. Only 12 percent of the crashes are the result of vehicle defects, road conditions or inclement weather.
In addition to the zero tolerance enforcement, the FHP will collaborate with the Florida Trucking Association to conduct activities at schools and community centers around the state to educate drivers on how to share the road safely with trucks.
