Aggressive Driving Enforcement Summary

Southeast Oakland County Crash Investigation Team

On Tuesday June 11, 2013, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, members of the Southeast Oakland County Crash Investigation Team (SOCCIT) conducted an “aggressive driving” enforcement detail.  The enforcement zone was along I-75 from Baldwin Rd. in Auburn Hills to 14 Mile Rd. in Troy.  Officers focused their enforcement efforts toward reducing crashes and aggressive driving.  The following is a summary of the activity during the enforcement period:

  • 11 officers participated in the enforcement detail.
  • 43 vehicles were stopped.
  • 30 speeding citations were issued.
    •   2 of which were for 104 mph.
      •   The majority of speeding violations were for 85 to 95 mph in a 70 mph zone.
  • One driver was arrested on a Child Support warrant.

The SOCCIT team is comprised of crash investigators from Auburn Hills, Troy, and Bloomfield Twp. Police Departments.  The team is a collaborative effort to reduce investigative costs to all communities, provide high quality crash investigations, and improve the efficiency of re-opening roads to the motoring public quicker.

In February the SOCCIT team was recognized by the Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police for their resource sharing and traffic incident management program.  They were awarded a $5,000 grant for “Excellence in Traffic Safety” to be used for a traffic safety initiative.  These funds will be used to cover the cost of this enforcement detail.

The SOCCIT team would like to thank the media for supporting this traffic safety initiative and spreading the word about the consequences of driving aggressive.
