Police in Luzerne County, PA are cracking down on aggressive truck drivers

08.23.19 | Sarah Harnisch

The move comes following hundreds of reports of distracted and unsafe driving.

Officer Ryan Cywinski says, "we see a lot of trucks that are speeding, aggressive lane changing, going through stop signs, weaving in and out of traffic, weaving off of the road."

Highway safety officials say Hanover Township is a problem area. It's part of a pilot program funded by PennDOT that allows officers to take a closer look at trucks on the road.

The campaign has been going on for a few weeks and will continue until the grant money runs out.
