Police cite hundreds of drivers during Heat On 30 campaign

Posted: Updated:
YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

When police in York County went looking for dangerous drivers on Route 30, they found them: not just dozens, but officers say there were hundreds of violators.

The aggressive driving campaign has kept police busy. In just a 12-week period, they issued over 300 tickets.

The "Heat On 30" campaign began back in March, but police just wrapped up their second wave in the middle of August.

When it was all said and done, officers issued 311 tickets total for both waves, and 177 of those came in July and August.

Now police say it's up to the driver to be responsible and safe behind the wheel.

"Route 30 is a definite problem for us, and in July alone we had close to probably 50 accidents on the corridor," said Lt. David Lash of the Northern York County Regional Police. "So we know aggressive driving exists down there."

A third wave is possible, which would kick off in either September or October—but a final decision has not yet been made.
