CLEARFIELD, CLEARFIELD COUNTY - Local agencies are banding together to crack down on aggressive driving.  The Clearfield Borough Police Department has teamed up with the Clearfield Fire Department and Clearfield EMS Inc.  Last year in Clearfield Borough, more than 67 percent of crashes were attributed to aggressive driving. They said of those crashes, more than one third resulted in some type of injury.

They're trying to reduce the number of aggressive-driving related crashes, injuries and deaths by cracking down on speeding, tailgating and running red lights. Any aggressive driver stopped by police will receive a ticket.  

The Clearfield Borough Police Department will be joined by the Pennsylvania State Police and more than 330 municipal agencies to conduct targeted aggressive-driving enforcement through Aug. 31.
