Pennsylvania State Police and Maryland State Police will coordinate efforts for a special enforcement of Interstate 83 from York to Baltimore.

Maryland State Police said the effort is in response to complaints about dangerous drivers on the interstate.

Beginning early Friday morning, there will be a coordinated police traffic enforcement effort that will blanket I-83 with troopers from Maryland and Pennsylvania state police, as well as police officers from the Baltimore County Police and Baltimore Police Department.

Police will focus their enforcement on aggressive drivers, speeders, distracted drivers, tailgating drivers and drivers and passengers not wearing seat belts.

The enforcement area will cover I-83 from York into Baltimore City.

    Why is it the Sentinel continues to buy into this crap. You can receive a ticket for not wearing a seatbelt, but I'm not sure why that makes you a "dangerous driver", nor do I see how that helps make you a better one. You can receive a ticket for speeding, or following too closely, but there are no laws specific to distracted or aggressive drivers. Careless driving? Oh why would the police depts. working with the Sentinel use that boring term when they can use "aggressive"?
