Florida Highway Patrol stepping up ticketing of aggressive drivers on highways this week

State troopers are on the hunt this week for the all-too-common South Florida driver: one who speeds, tailgates and weaves dangerously in and out of lanes.

This week, the Florida Highway Patrol has stepped up ticketing of aggressive car and truck drivers on Florida highways. The enforcement campaign lasts through Friday.

The week-long enforcement aims to reduce the number of fatal crashes involving cars and commercial trucks, the Highway Patrol said. In 88 percent of those crashes, both the truck driver and car driver were at fault, the agency said.
