First came the crackdown on road rage and aggressive drivers...
now Florida Highway Patrol is promising to bust rude drivers.
F-H-P says they're looking for motorists who commit a series of relatively minor violations.
"We are going to need to enforce it stricter because we don't want it to progress into a rude driver who's going to progress into the aggressive driver who may also progress into the road rage driver," says Mike Burroughs with the Florida Highway Patrol.
The crackdown began in south Florida, where troopers handed out nearly one thousand tickets in the past week. Officials say whatever starts in south Florida ends up spreading to the rest of the state, so the campaign against rude drivers is also expanding statewide.
