Stop Aggressive Driving Campaign on Local Highways

CORPUS CHRISTI - Expect to see a lot of Corpus Christi Police Department officers and Department of Public Safety officers looking for aggressive drivers this week.

This morning, quite a few commuters were pulled over on Interstate 37, S. Padre Island Drive, and Highway 181 as part of an anti-aggressive driving campaign.

Roughly 200 drivers received speeding tickets this morning. Officers and troopers will be back out for a repeat this afternoon.

Aggressive driving is defined as going more than 20 miles over the speed limit on any road and more than 10 miles over the speed limit in a school zone. The fines are up to $500 per offense. The Corpus Christi city council approved the aggressive driving ordinance last fall.

According to the Corpus Christi Police Department, this effort will last a few days, but more events are expected throughout the year.
