Be REDDI in 2015 Jan. 5, 2015

Report Every Dangerous Driver ImmediatelyIt’s the beginning of the year, so like many of you, we have New Year’s resolutions on the mind. But instead of the typical goals, we’re asking you to add this to your resolutions list: Report Every Dangerous Driver Immediately.
That’s the message behind the REDDI program, which asks residents to watch for and report drivers who might be a danger to themselves or others. This includes drivers who are:

  • under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
  • driving while distracted;
  • are too tired to safely operate a vehicle; or
  • are exhibiting driving behaviors that might put others at risk, such as swerving, passing on curves, and weaving in and out of lanes.

So how do you make a REDDI report?
Reporting a dangerous driver is as easy as 1-2-3:
1. Get information about the vehicle and driver. This includes:

  • the vehicle’s license plate number;
  • make and model of the vehicle;
  • a description of the driver (or name if you know the person); and
  • any identifying characteristics about the vehicle, such as bumper stickers or special design features.

2. If you are driving, stop at a safe place or pick a passenger to make the call.
3. Call 911, and a dispatcher will lead you through the report.

So in 2015, make sure you call 911 if you see a dangerous driver. Your call could save a life.
