CRIME TRACKER: Fewer aggressive driving cases in the Tri-Cities

TRI-CITIES, Wash. -- KEPR learned far fewer people are being ticketed for aggressive driving in the Tri-Cities.

So far this year, troopers stopped a thousand people for driving recklessly.

That's half the number of stops made last year at this time.

After a series of road rage incidents, troopers beefed up aggressive driving patrols in February.

They think this has had a direct affect.

As good as the numbers seem, we're not out of the clear.

Troopers tell us aggressive driving is the worst during the summer.
