In Partnership with NHTSA: Washington State Patrol Focuses on Aggressive Drivers

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has sponsored several studies in the last 30 years that attempt to identify causes of roadway collisions. Research consistently reports that driving behavior and human factors account for more than 90 percent of all collisions. With this information and years of experience and research, traffic safety experts have concluded that proactive, targeted traffic law enforcement has the potential to effectively change driving behavior and prevent collisions.
