NM Cracks Down On Aggressive Driving

Las Cruces – Transportation police with the state Department of Public Safety are cracking down this week on aggressive and distracted drivers as part of a nationwide effort to improve highway safety.

Officers will be using marked and unmarked vehicles during the special operation. Both commercial and noncommercial vehicles will be targeted.

The department says a similar effort by motor transportation officers last year resulted in 266 citations for speeding, following too close and other moving violations.
