Police doing extra road enforcement in Plantation, I-95, 5-10 pm Sept. 29

The Broward Sheriff’s Office, Florida Highway Patrol and numerous police agencies from Broward County are approaching the one year mark of Operation “BAD” (Blitz on Aggressive Drivers) with continued operations on Tuesday, September 29th from 5 – 10 p.m. They will concentrate on streets in the city of Plantation and Interstate 95 throughout Broward County.

This joint enforcement effort was launched in October, 2008. Sheriff Al Lamberti said, “Aggressive drivers have no place on our roads – they recklessly endanger the lives of all motorists, their passengers, and innocent people.” The first-of-its-kind multi-agency task force has grown to include representation from over a dozen law enforcement agencies throughout Broward committed to making the roads safer for all, through zero tolerance for aggressive drivers.

South Florida leads the state in aggressive drivers. This joint enforcement effort has the BSO Regional Traffic Enforcement Unit deputies, FHP troopers and police officers from all over Broward in unconventional unmarked cars and motorcycles zeroing in on aggressive drivers.

Operation “BAD” is an ongoing effort conducted on the Interstates, toll roads and highways in Broward County. Participating agencies, in addition to those listed above, include Coconut Creek, Coral Springs, Davie, Florida Dept. of Transportation, Ft. Lauderdale, Hallandale Beach, Hollywood, Lauderhill, Lighthouse Point, Margate, Miramar, Pembroke Pines, Plantation, Sunrise and Wilton Manors police departments.
