FHP Combats Aggressive Driving with Task Force
The Florida Highway Patrol and Broward County Sheriff’s Office once again worked together to combat aggressive drivers. This time, more than 15 law enforcement agencies were involved in the effort as part of a new multi-agency task force named BAD (Blitz on Aggressive Drivers).
The BAD initiative was announced at a press conference by Broward County Sheriff Al Lamberti and FHP Maj. Miguel Guzman, along with Chief Duncan Foster from the city of Coral Springs, representing the Broward County Police Chief’s Association.
The BAD task force allows officers from other police agencies to be deputized so jurisdictional boundaries do not inhibit the enforcement of traffic laws. Maj. Miguel Guzman and others addressed the media, informing the public about the dangers of aggressive driving, and encouraging other law enforcement agencies across the state of Florida to adopt similar initiatives.
