Kuna Melba News k, June 21, 2006 - 15 eSmmm in Bert Shields BOISE - Tailgating, quick lane changes, running yellow lights, speeding or ignoring traffic signs and signals are telltale characteristics of an aggressive driver, according to the Idaho Transportation Department. "Getting Aggressive with Aggressive Drivers" is the. latest message the ITD and law enforcement agencies throughout Idaho are giving motorists this summer as patrols are beefed up from June 5 to August 14 to catch and fine aggressive drivers. "I see crashes every day that injure or kill people as a result of aggressive driv- ing," said Boise Police Offi- cer Kyle Wills. "Think about living the rest of your life with the thought of having maimed or killed someone and then think again if it is worth speeding or running lights." Aggressive driving injures and kills more people each year than any other driving behavior. Last year, 55 percent of car crashes in Idaho were the result of aggressive driv- ing, according to ITD. While teens are four times more likely to be involved in an ag- gressive driving crash than all other age groups, almost every adult is also guilty of driving aggressively. The challenge that the transportation department and law enforcement agen- cies face in working to re- duce aggressive driving is that most drivers recognize aggressive driving behaviors in others, while failing to see their own aggressive behav- iors. "If you are an aggressive driver, eventually youre go- ing to seriously injure or kill yourself or someone else, neither of which is worth getting to your destination five minutes earlier," said Wills. Aggressive Driving in Idaho Aggressive driving is against the law. Fines for aggressive driving in Idaho range from $62 to $117. Traffic violations that result in points on your drivers record could lead to license revocation and higher insur- ance premiums.
