Pittsburgh police announced Monday that they have begun a two-week campaign aimed at reducing aggressive driving along two roads in the city.

Now through Sept. 27, officers will be stationed along Carson Street and along Route 8, which includes sections of Washington Boulevard and Butler Street, to look for people who are speeding, running red lights, tailgating or otherwise driving aggressively, spokeswoman Diane Richard said in a news release. Police chose to focus on those two roads, she said, after they looked at aggressive driving crash statistics.

The effort is being run in connection with the Pennsylvania Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project.
