Aggressive Driving Enforcement
During the week of April 14th, the Upper Saucon Township Police Department, as well as Police Departments throughout Pennsylvania, will be targeting motorists exhibiting aggressive-driving behaviors such as running red lights, driving too fast for conditions, speeding, tailgating, and careless driving. Our goal is to save lives and reduce crashes, so we’re putting all drivers on alert. If you are speeding or driving aggressively, expect to be stopped and expect a ticket.

During enforcement activities on Wednesday, March 26, the Police Department issued 43 citations for aggressive driving.

The Upper Saucon Township Police Department has been selected to participate in the Pennsylvania Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project (PAADEEP). PAADEEP is a statewide initiative that utilizes crash data to identify aggressive driving locations. High visibility target enforcement, public awareness and training are conducted on these roadways to reduce the number of needless aggressive driving injuries and deaths.  Please look here for more information.
