Gainesville Police Crackdown On Aggressive Drivers
Chances are you've had to deal with aggressive drivers on Florida's roads before. Now, there's a better chance they're going to get caught.
For the past four years the Florida Department of Transportation has awarded the Gainesville Police Department a grant to minimize the number of aggressive drivers on the road. The goal is to reduce the amounts of crashes in the city.
Over the summer months GPD has additional patrol officers out on the road specifically looking for these drivers. Police say busy streets like University Avenue, 34th street and Archer road are some of the corridors where aggressive driving can be spotted the most.
Police say each year the program has been in effect, they've seen a decrease in crashes.
