20 Education and Outreach www.fmcsa.dot.gov Valuable Resource
21 Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks (TACT) Enforcement/Partnership/ Education/Outreach Demonstration program for high-visibility enforcement Through a partnership between the Washington State Patrol and the Washington Trucking Association, troopers ride in volunteer trucks.
