INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana State Police are participating in a six-state joint enforcement aimed at reducing crashes by curtailing aggressive and reckless driving.

The joint effort that began Sunday and runs through Saturday involves state troopers from Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

In the state of Indiana, aggressive driving is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and fines reaching $5,000. A motorist can be charged with that offense if they commit any three of the following infractions in a single episode of continuous driving: unsafe operation, passing on the right, unsafe stopping or slowing, unnecessary sounding of the horn, failure to yield, failure to obey traffic signals, following too closely, driving at unsafe speeds, and repeatedly flashing headlights.
