(IDAHO FALLS, ID) — For the next ten days, starting Friday, the Idaho Falls Police Department will be placing extra officers on the streets focusing on aggressive driving. The campaign is made possible thanks to a $7,500 grant from the Office of Highway Safety. According to the Transportation Department, 218 deaths and 1,840 serious injuries have been attributed to aggressive driving on Idaho roads over the past three years. The IFPD encourages all drivers to slow down, relax, concentrate, and make the choice to obey all traffic laws.
