Throughout the month of April, the Connellsville Police Department will be participating in Wave 1 of the Pennsylvania Aggressive Driving Enforcement.
Select police officers will patrol city roadways and highways, focusing on speeding, work-zone safety, careless driving, reckless driving, following too closely and other designated vehicle code violations.
The goal of PADE is to reduce the number of aggressive-driving-related collisions, injuries and deaths across Pennsylvania.
Violators could face costly fines along with points assigned by the Department of Transportation.
Connellsville officers are asking motorists to slow down, leave plenty of time for congested travel, be patient with other motorists and be alert for construction zones and construction workers.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
