Fort Bragg launches program to reduce aggressive driving


FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) — Officials at Fort Bragg say they’re expanding a driver improvement program aimed at cutting down on aggressive and dangerous driving on post.

The Charlotte Observer reports (http://bit.ly/2boKCfi) that starting Sept. 1, service members could lose their on-post driving privileges for a year or more if they fail to complete a one-day class following certain traffic violations or if they become repeat offenders.

Command Sgt. Maj. John Cervenka, Fort Bragg garrison’s senior enlisted leader, said the program is meant to address what’s termed an “unacceptably high rate of citation” among Fort Bragg drivers.

Post spokeswoman Christina Douglas said the expanded program also comes in response to an uptick in speeding citations on post, which is attributed to a crackdown on speeding by Fort Bragg law enforcement.
