Report Every Dangerous Driver Immediately (REDDI)
Dangerous drivers risk death and injury not only to themselves, but to other innocent people both in their vehicle or in other vehicles on the road. Reckless, intimidating aggressive behavior are some examples. Drunk, drugged, fatigued driving are others. This becomes a problem when the dangerous driver illustrates signs of worsening control, which can put the lives of other people at risk.
Signs of dangerous driving may include:
- weaving in and out of lanes
- driving with windows rolled down in cold weather
- passing on curves and double yellow lines
- straddling the center line
- making wide or high speed turns out of assigned lanes
- driving so slowly as to impede other traffic under current conditions
CALL 911 when you believe there is a risk of death or injury due to dangerous driver behavior. DO NOT call 911 for minor behaviors that do not appear to cause confusion or risk of death or injury.
Please stop at a safe place or have a passenger make the call, and report the vehicle along with its description and location. Remember, the driver may be ill or intoxicated and shouldn't be on the road. State and local law enforcement agencies will respond as quickly as possible.
Please do your part to drive safely and encourage others to do the same. Remember, the life you save may be your own.
