Most of us have either encountered or witnessed a reckless driver.
The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office is hoping to put a stop to that.
Bonneville County, along with other law enforcement agencies across the State of Idaho, are adding extra officers to our streets, roads and highways.
They are looking to target aggressive drivers.
During this time of year, better known as the deadliest 100 days of summer, many serious injuries and fatal crashes are tied to speeding and aggressive driving.
The Idaho Office of Highway Safety contracts with law enforcement agencies to get more officers on the road to decrease aggressive driving habits.
” We are part of an effort for the Idaho Transportation Department to send out extra officers and look for aggressive drivers, ” Sgt. Bryan Lovell with the Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office said. ” Hopefully, we can do some education this way. We hope to target areas with a lot of traffic where we get complaints of a lot of aggressive drivers and hopefully get people down to driving at a safe level. ”
These extra officers will be on the lookout for other types of traffic violations in order to help educate and curb bad driving habits.
Bonneville County started its search for aggressive drivers Friday and will continue to look out for more aggressive drivers through Aug. 7.
