The La Porte Police Department will conduct its final Aggressive Driving and Dangerous Driving Patrols for Operation Pull Over funded patrols for Fiscal Year 2017. Officers will focus on driving behaviors that lead to Aggressive or Dangerous driving habits. These would include but not limited to Speeding, Illegal Passing, Passing a School Bus with its Stop Arm extended, Reckless Driving, and more. Extra patrols will be conducted from now until the end of September.
The La Porte Police Department asks the public to be vigilant of their driving habits to ensure not only the safety of themselves but also the bicyclists and pedestrians moving about. Remember that school has recently begun and paying attention to the young children walking to school should be a priority with every driver.
