Police throughout the D.C. region will be targeting aggressive drivers in the coming days as part of a week-long campaign.

The Smooth Operator campaign starts on Sunday in D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia. Police as far away as Pennsylvania will also take part.

Officers will look for aggressive driving behaviors, including speeding, tailgating, and unsafe lane changing. They'll also look for drivers that fail to yield the right-of-way or who run red lights and stop signs.

Police are advising drivers to give themselves extra time and to avoid road rage so that they don't end up being one of those pulled over during the operation. The week-long campaign is the first of four such operations that will take place this summer.
