FHP ticketing aggressive driving

-A A +A

Big trucks need more room on road

The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) has added an additional enforcement week dedicated to the Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks (TACT) campaign that started Monday, Sept. 23 and ends Friday, Sept. 27. 

The TACT campaign is targeted to highlight the danger of aggressive driving behaviors when interacting with large trucks on the road.

Motorists are at a serious disadvantage if involved in a crash with a large commercial vehicle. Large trucks can be as long as 80 feet and weigh up to 20 tons. The large size also means it takes 40 percent longer for them to come to a stop than a smaller vehicle. Troopers statewide will be on the lookout for car and truck drivers who exhibit aggressive driving such as following too closely, unsafe lane changes and speeding.

“FHP is committed to reducing the number of commercial vehicle-related crashes on Florida roadways” said Colonel David Brierton, Director of the Florida Highway Patrol. “We can reduce crashes if we all share the roads safely, avoid aggressive driving behaviors and exercise additional caution when driving near larger vehicles.”
