The Maryland State Police, College Park Barrack, Calls For Service/Arrest: 1/6/20-1/12/20
This press release is designed to inform the public of our commitment to ensuring safety and enforcing the laws in Maryland.
Our message this week is road rage leads to serious consequences. Road rage is aggressive or angry behavior exhibited by a driver of a vehicle. These behaviors include rude and offensive gestures, verbal insults, physical threats or dangerous driving methods targeted toward another driver or a pedestrian in an effort to intimidate or release frustration. One study estimates that more than half of all drivers have experienced a surge of road rage at some point, although not all bang into the offender’s rear bumper, pull a pistol, or intentionally run you off the road. Still, tens of thousands of accidents happen each year because of aggressive driving, which is also a leading cause of death for young children.
Our message is clear, allow plenty of time while commuting, slow down, drive respectfully and relax. Our family’s lives depend on it.
