First of a series of huge police crackdowns on Aggressive Driving begins this week in Virginia, Maryland and DC
Posted on Jun 05, 2007
The Smooth Operator Program, a joint effort by Virginia, Maryland and DC law enforcement agencies to crack down on Aggressive Driving, announced the first of several "waves" which began on June 3 and continues until June 9, 2007
Smooth Operator is the name given to a special effort by D.C., Maryland and Virginia to enforce aggressive driving laws.
Cpl. Jonathan Green of the Maryland Transportation Authority Police says these are things you shouldn't do any day of the year: "Speeding, passing, overtaking, failure to obey lane controls, traffic signals and lights."
The first of what are called "waves" of the Smooth Operator Program starts Monday and runs through June 9. A wave is nothing but a crackdown- meaning there will be more officers on the road writing more tickets.
Here are the dates of all the 2007 Law Enforcement Waves, which coincide with the busiest summer weekends, including the 4th of July and Labor Day weekends:
