HAZLETON - In it's efforts to making safer roadways and deliver a better quality of life to local residents, the Hazleton Police Department will heavily enforce the department's Aggressive Driving Campaign, according to a press release.
Over the course of the last Statewide Aggressive Driving Campaign, the Hazleton Police Department was recognized for its efforts in leading the County in a number of aggressive driving categories.
The department will begin to crack down on off road vehicles, which are being driven without safety equipment, unregistered, uninsured and being operating unsafely on our roadways and outlining areas.
These vehicles and operators are usually operating illegally and without proper documentation and/or safety equipment.
The Hazleton Police Department will enforce the laws of the Commonwealth and begin to cite anyone operating on unauthorized land, public roadways without proper licensing and documentation.
Any off road vehicles in violation will be towed and individuals violating the Vehicle Code will be cited accordingly.
The following statement comes from Mayor Jeff Cusat:
"I have received and witnessed numerous off road vehicles ignoring the laws and creating a hazard, which will not be permitted"
The following statement comes from Chief of Police, Jerry Speziale:
"This is a warning to those ignoring the law and creating dangerous situations for the safe operating public. The department will enforce these violations and begin to crack down on the violators. Officers will address the situation and those that disregard the warning will face the consequences."
