Three people were arrested and many others issued summonses Thursday during a crackdown on unsafe and aggressive drivers along Route 454, Suffolk police said.
One driver tried to flee but was arrested after a brief chase when he got stuck in traffic, police said.
About 50 summonses were issued for traffic or vehicle violations, police said.
During the crackdown, Fourth Precinct COPE Officer Guy Gourlay tried to pull over a vehicle driven by Michael Russo, of Washington Avenue in Holtsville.
But Russo, 20, sped off, got stuck in traffic, then was caught by the officer. Russo was charged with third-degree unlawful fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle, reckless driving, driving while ability impaired by drugs and criminal possession of marijuana.
