Posted: Updated:

The New Castle City Police Department released a statement on Thursday stating that they have received an increased number of complaints having to do with aggressive drivers failing to stop at stop signs throughout the City of New Castle.

According to the New Castle PD Facebook page, the complaints also involve speeding, distracted driving, and aggressive driving during school hours, when children are getting to or leaving school.

The New Castle PD stated that they will be vigorously enforcing laws to end these dangerous driving behaviors, so that they can provide safe travel to and from school for the children in the New Castle community.

The NCPD Facebook page wrote, "Do no put lives in our community in danger. Please pay attention and put your cell phone down while driving and stop at stop signs."

The NCPD also wrote a statement reminding drivers that PA state law requires motorist's to yield to pedestrians in marked crosswalks or within any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection.
