~ Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks Campaign runs August 11-24 ~
TALLAHASSEE — Beginning today, August 11, Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) Troopers will begin Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks (TACT), a safety campaign aimed at educating motorists about the dangers of aggressive driving around large trucks and reducing commercial motor vehicle crashes.
“FHP is committed to making our highways safer, and one way to accomplish this is to enforce safe driving around commercial motor vehicles,” said Colonel Gene Spaulding, Director of the Florida Highway Patrol. “We remind drivers to exercise patience when driving around large trucks and other vehicles to ensure the safety of everyone on the roadway.”
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the efficient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.
