Austin police cracking down on aggressive drivers

Austin police are encouraging all drivers to slow down and settle down in attempts to reduce the number of aggressive drivers in the area. After a recent traffic fatality, Austin police are teaming up several surrounding police forces to conduct a sting on aggressive driving in the hopes to reduce the number of traffic fatalities.

The city just recorded its 21st death of 2013 from a motor vehicle accident after a driver lost control and collided with two motorcycles. The accident occurred at the 9400 block of FM 2222 when a driver lost control of his car, which caused his vehicle to spin. Upon spinning, two motorcyclists, one carrying a passenger, collided with the car. As a result, a 31-year-old man, one of the motorcyclists, is dead and three others suffered injuries. Police are continuing to investigate the accident.
