Loudoun County, VA – The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and the Virginia State Police announced a joint effort to combat aggressive driving on Route 9 from May 11th to May 25th. This is the second year in a row the two agencies have joined forces to target aggressive drivers in a continuing effort to promote highway safety and the efficient flow of traffic for Virginia motorists and visitors.

“Distracted and aggressive driving on Route 9 can end in tragedy. This enforcement effort is an opportunity to make Route 9 safe for everyone by reminding drivers to stay aware and to obey the laws,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Michael L. Chapman.

State Police and Sheriff’s Office personnel will utilize a variety of tactics including patrol with marked and unmarked police vehicles and checkpoints, and an increased presence of deputies and troopers.

“This joint initiative between the agencies involved will only enhance enforcement efforts and provide a continuous patrol in order to slow down those motorists exceeding the speed limit and driving aggressively,” said First Sergeant Alvin Blankenship, Virginia State Police Area Office Commander for Loudoun County. “If motorists continue to drive carelessly and too fast on Route 9, then we have no choice but to be aggressive in our enforcement efforts. Motorists need to slow down and drive responsibly because we will be strictly enforcing the traffic laws on this stretch of road.”
