BALTIMORE- Maryland Transportation Authority Police are on the lookout for aggressive drivers in Maryland and Washington, D.C.

MDTA Police will be enhancing highway safety and targeting aggressive drivers during the fourth installment of the Smooth Operator Program.

MDTA Police Chief Col. Michael Kundrat hopes that the program will enforce people to maintain their good driving habits.

"Aggressive driving is one of the worst behaviors we can have on the road," Kundrat said. "And that is why our officers look for these habits daily."

According to MDTA Police, "aggressive driving" occurs when a driver commits a combination of moving traffic offenses that endangers other people or property. These actions can be recognized as speeding, tailgating, improper passing or weaving. Should these behaviors be done in sequence, they have the potential to create a dangerous environment on the highways.

The 2012 campaign gave out nearly 400,000 citations over its four periods. Since 1997, over 3.6 million citations have been issued to aggressive drivers.
