UPPER DARBY, Pa (CBS) - Upper Darby’s mayor, top cop and several officers will be at the intersection of West Chester Pike and State Road to hand out some advice to drivers to keep them safer and maybe a little more calm behind the wheel.
This is “Please don’t get angry” day in Upper Darby. Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood wants drivers to think twice before getting aggressive on the road. (Check out the official brochure here)
“Take a deep breath. You don’t have to run over somebody or you don’t have to pull a gun. You don’t have to get out of your car and fight with somebody.”
And those who do usually wind up in trouble with the law not to mention injured, maybe even killed over road rage. Will the handouts work? Who knows, but with more violent incidents on roadways across America, officials in Upper Darby thought they had to try something.
