LEE COUNTY, Fla.-- Starting today through June 28th, the Florida Highway Patrol will begin the safety campaign Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks (TACT).

The campaign's goal is to educate motorists about the dangers of aggressive driving around large trucks and reducing commercial motor vehicle-related crashes.

Drivers are at a serious disadvantage if they are involved in a crash with a large commercial vehicle. To keep motorists safe on Florida roads, Troopers will be looking for car and truck drivers who display aggressive driving behaviors such as following too closely, speeding and unsafe lane changes.
