The Arlington Police Department is rolling out a new road rage hotline so drivers can have follow-up communication with authorities after aggressive driving incidents.
APD says the hotline is not a replacement for calling 911; police say you should call 911 during a road rage incident and call the hotline to give detailed information to authorities afterwards. Information like license plate numbers can help officers follow up on the incident.
"We believe that there has been an increase in the frequency and severity of road rage type incidents on our area freeways," Lt. Jeff Pugh said. "We will not tolerate driving behaviors that put the motoring public in danger and will deal with other criminal acts that occur in conjunction with aggressive driving."
You can call the hotline at 817-459-5389.
