TIGARD, OR (KPTV) -

Washington County Sheriff's deputies gave out 163 tickets during a sing operation on Interstate 5.

The two-day operation targeted aggressive drivers on a 7-mile stretch of the interstate near the Highway 217 interchange.

Deputies followed an ODOT semi-truck and watched how drivers interacted with it.

They looked for speeding, tail-gating, unsafe and un-signaled lane changes.

Deputies say they made 216 stops and each ticket could cost the driver $260.

The goal was to curb aggressive driving, which deputies say often causes accidents.
