Once again thousands of Delawareans will be hitting the road to visit family and friends and even do some after Thanksgiving shopping. The Office of Highway Safety wants to remind motorists as they travel this holiday season to buckle up, practice patience behind the wheel, and if partaking in some holiday ‘spirits’ use a designated driver because Delaware law enforcement will be on high alert to make sure you arrive safely to your destination.
The Office of Highway Safety has coordinated another wave of overtime Aggressive Driving enforcement and is set to conduct enforcement from October 23rd to November 3rd. Law enforcement agencies participating in the enforcement include Delaware State Police in all three counties, along with the Georgetown, Milford, Newark, New Castle County, Seaford, and Wilmington police departments.
Aggressive driving is all around us. Thankfully, we have the safety of seat belts and air bags to protect us. But what about motorcyclists? Imagine the risks that they have to take. The Office of Highway Safety reminds you to practice safe driving behaviors whether you are driving a car, truck or motorcycle. Share the Road. Arrive Alive.
