State Police officers will be on the lookout for aggressive drivers this weekend.

"We're setting the tone for Memorial Day Weekend," Sgt. Dwayne Gill said.

Gill said officers will be looking for drivers who exhibit any of the following behavior:


Erratic driving

Speeding (excessive, not the five-over flow-of-traffic variety)

Not wearing seatbelts

"There were 18 traffic related fatalities over Memorial Day," Gill said. "We're trying to reduce that."

"That's our goal - save lives."
