Cop's Corner with Captain Cupp

Captain David G. Cupp

Captain Cupp is the daytime shift commander for the Bartlett Police Department. Each week Captain Cupp will provide citizens of Bartlett with information useful to Bartlett residents concerning traffic and public safety and little known facts about the Bartlett Police Department.

This week's topic:
Road Rage

Aggressive driving, tailgating, honking, fist and hand gestures, yelling, speeding, cutting off other drivers, and here lately the use of firearms are all a product of Road Rage. It may be that we are under more stress lately or it may just be a sign of the times. I can’t see that this will be getting better any time soon with the holidays coming on. We need to be prepared for this. Road Rage is responsible for 66% of all traffic fatalities.

We can’t control the Traffic but we can control the way we react to it.

Any Traffic Questions or Concerns feel free to contact me at my email address.
