Alaska State Troopers have launched a public awareness campaign against aggressive driving.

Troopers say it’s part of ongoing efforts to reduce major collisions on Alaska’s roadways. According to troopers, there have been 35 roadway fatalities since the start of the year.

The campaign was launched Thursday with a public service announcement released by the state Department of Public Safety.

The PSA will run on some TV and radio stations, as well as on GCI cable, through July 24.
