Penbrook police go after aggressive drivers

Posted: Updated:

The Penbrook Borough Police Department is one of nine municipal departments in the region to get grant money to crack down on aggressive drivers.

The money funded more patrols along Walnut Street. Officials said they want to deter people from exceeding the posted speed limit of 25 and 35 mph along that stretch of road. Police issued 22 speeding citations on Monday.

Police said aggressive driving consists of more than just speeding. They were looking out for tailgating, drivers who fail to use turn signals, and those who run stop signs. Officers around the region have also been citing people for suspended licenses and driving under the influence.

A PennDOT spokesperson said Columbia police during an aggressive driving enforcement effort stopped a man who was driving stolen car. Officers found heroin and a gun in the vehicle.
