The Oregon Department of Transportation periodically coordinates with law enforcement to conduct exercises aimed at stopping aggressive driving around trucks. During the Spring 2008 TACT exercise, law enforcement officers pulled over 362 drivers, issuing 351 tickets and 97 warnings. The two most common violations were unlawful lane changes and tailgating. Fines ranged from $97 to $242. The Fall 2008 TACT operation resulted in citations to 34 car drivers and four truck drivers during a two-day exercise. Marion County Sheriffs and Salem Police patrolled I-5 while other officers rode in trucks looking for drivers engaging in risky behavior like speeding, tailgating, and changing lanes unsafely. Twelve Oregon State Police troopers, three Marion County deputies, and one Salem police officer were involved in the TACT exercise. Officers issued 34 citations for violations and 21 warnings were also issued. Prior to and during the two-day TACT project, the public received a media campaign including public service announcements, posters, highway signs and brochures featuring the TACT message. The key campaign message motorists saw over and over again was "LEAVE MORE SPACE FOR TRUCKS".
A similar campaign occurred the last week of May 2009. Local law enforcement officers spent the week on Interstate 5, south of Portland OR, emphasizing enforcement of aggressive driving around commercial motor vehicles. Results are currently being compiled. The Oregon DOT received a MCSAP high priority grant in April 2009 to continue its TACT efforts.
