BALTIMORE, Md.

Officers focused on leading causes of crashes including aggressive, distracted, and impaired driving.

MDTA Police Officers conducted 457 traffic stops and issued a combined 756 citations, warnings, and repair orders during the initiative. Three drivers were charged with driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, one driver was charged with drug offenses, and four drivers were arrested on open warrants.
