Maryland law enforcement agencies are targeting aggressive drivers this week.
Police across the state are stepping up patrols and public outreach to try and reduce the number of car crashes, and promote smart decision-making by drivers.
This is part of the third wave of the Smooth Operator program, a joint effort between law enforcement groups. The program was created in 1997 by 18 agencies.
Maryland Transportation Authority police say since then, officers have issued more than 3.6 million citations through the initiative.
This wave of the campaign continues through Saturday. The fourth wave is scheduled to begin September 4.
