In the summer of 2009, Georgia's sheriff deputies, law enforcement officials, and the Georgia Department of Public Safety teamed up in an initiative called G-TACT (Georgia Targeting Aggressive Cars and Trucks), aimed at stopping aggressive drivers of cars and trucks.
Georgia officials noticed an increase in aggressive driving behaviors, and wanted to spotlight this problem in the hopes of decreasing it, particularly in truck drivers. Aggressive driving is always dangerous, but especially when a fully loaded tractor trailer weighing 80,000 pounds is participating in this behavior. In fact, statistics show that occupants of passenger vehicles are most likely to be injured or die in accidents between cars and big rigs.
What were the results of the Georgia aggressive driving campaign?
The G-TACT initiative resulted in 444 traffic citations and 330 warnings. Officials also conducted over 400 large truck safety inspections during this five-day event. The crackdown on aggressive driving in Atlanta and throughout Georgia resulted in one main message that law enforcement officers wanted to share with all Georgia motorists: Leave plenty of room around large trucks.
