Police targeting bad drivers tonight on I-95

Tonight, Friday, March 27 from 6 p.m. to midnight, police will be aggressively targeting reckless drivers, speeders, seatbelt violators and the “Move Over Law.”

The Multi-Agency Aggressive Driving Task Force comprised of the Broward Sheriff’s Office, Florida Highway Patrol and a dozen law enforcement agencies are continuing Operation “BAD” (Blitz on Aggressive Drivers) Friday and will concentrate on Interstate 95 from Davie Blvd. in Ft.

Participating agencies, in addition to those listed above, include: Coconut Creek, Coral Springs, Davie, Florida Dept. of Transportation, Hollywood, Lauderhill, Lighthouse Point, Margate, Miramar, Pembroke Pines, Plantation, Sunrise, and Wilton Manors Police Departments.
