CARY — Cary police will be looking for aggressive drivers today as part of its "Operation Patient Payoff." The operation is run on U.S. 1 from the Walnut Street exit to the U.S. 64/Tryon Road from 9:30 a.m. to noon and then 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Cary police are reminding drivers to allow three seconds to pass between their vehicle and the one in front of them. Police will monitor tailgating, speeding and lane change violations.
Police will use both marked and unmarked cars, in addition to motorcycles along U.S. 1.
"Because aggressive driving can lead to fatal consequences, we implemented Operation Patient Payoff to encourage safe driving in Cary," Lt. Mark Parker said in a statement.
Cary police ran the campaign one day in March along Interstate 40 and issued more than 30 citations.
Cary also has a "Road Watch" hotline for motorists to report aggressive driving: 319-4521.
