May is aggressive driving month in British Columbia and local RCMP will be targeting aggressive drivers to to help make streets safer, said an RCMP press release last week.
Aggressive driving includes: speeding, excessive speeding (41 kph+ over the posted speed limit), unsafe lane change or weaving in and out of traffic, rolling through stop signs, failing to stop for yellow or red light and fail to yield.
These behaviors often lead to frustrated drivers and could result in a serious injury/fatal collision or a road rage incident. This May, police will direct resources towards addressing aggressive drivers.
“For those who drive aggressively, now is the time to make the choice to change,” says Sgt. Pam Scott of the West Pacific Region Traffic Services.
