Northampton Township’s Anti-Aggressive Driving/Buckle Up Campaign was a success, according information released from the department.
According a press release from the Northampton Township Police Department, 54 motorists were stopped along Second Street Pike between Dec. 3 and Dec. 31.
“Although those contacts resulted in a number of traffic citations issued to violators for speeding, turning issues and the disobedience of traffic control devices, more importantly our officers delivered the important message to motorists that aggressive driving or driving while impaired will not be tolerated,” the press release said.
According to police, Second Street Pike (Route 232) was selected based on the amount of traffic, the number of crashes, and the amount of suspected aggressive driving that occurs on the road.
Officers dedicated 23 patrol hours to the campaign.
“Our officers want to thank the vast majority of motorists who travel through Northampton Township and do drive courteously and defensively. We also want to remind all motorists to always buckle up and safely buckle up children in a properly-installed children restraint seat,” the release said.
