It's emphasis patrol time; be careful out there

This from the Spokesman review this morning:

Aggressive drivers will be targeted today in North Idaho starting with the morning commute and throughout the day, police said.

Law enforcement agencies will focus on drivers who speed, tailgate and roll through stop signs, said Idaho State Police Lt. Chris Schenck.

But the "tone of the emphasis may change depending on the weather."

Police agencies from throughout the region are expected to participate, Schenck said.

The targeted areas will include Interstate 90 from Stateline to the east side of Coeur d'Alene and U.S. Highway 95 from the Coeur d'Alene Casino to Silverwood Theme Park.

Not only that but the police are also teamed up with the railroads this week to catch drivers who try to beat the trains through intersections rather than stopping to wait. Read that full story here.
