What is Aggressive Driving?

by mphippen 9. November 2012 08:21

You’re in the fast lane going the speed limit maybe a bit more, when you see in the rearview mirror another driver inches from your bumper flashing their headlights! You immediately retaliate and start pumping the brakes while gesticulating a digit salute. This is how it starts. I euphemistically call it “Idiots behind the Wheel.” I hesitate to call it style or lack thereof, but this style of driving is all about selfishness. This menace perceives their time as far more important than yours or mine, so you had better get out of the way! Who are these people? More...

DBC Technology Getting Recognition for Assisting Officers in Tailgating Violations

by mphippen 30. August 2012 13:37

Finally…Police Departments are realizing the benefits of DBC (Distance Between Cars)! It’s gratifying to know our Highway Safety Offices give more than lip service to making our roadways safer. Anyone that drives knows that following too close is dangerous but if one keeps a safe distance between them and the car in front, some other nitwit will pull into the safe zone created once again making the safe driver look like the violator. I think I speak for safe drivers everywhere; "we’ve all been there!" More...

DBC Technology helps with Tailgating Enforcement

DBC Technology

We have all seen that driver, the one who zooms past, weaves in and out of traffic, and tailgates only to slam on the brakes. Maybe you have been that driver.

Maryland and a few other states like Pennsylvania and Virginia are part of the Smooth Operator campaign which targets aggressive drivers. This program has become a model program nationwide and continues to grow every year. In 2010, the campaign was stepped up and more than 510,000 citations were given out over the year.

The Wall Street Journal article - "Honk if You're an Aggressive Driver " 6-2010 states, “Last year, police officers in the state [Maryland] wrote 207,000 tickets for aggressive driving, says Vernon Betkey, head of the state's highway safety agency. The most recent crackdown started earlier this month."
