During the detail a total of 74 tickets were issued including 70 Speeding Violations, 1 cell phone and 3 tickets for other violations of the Vehicle and Traffic Law.
The "Speed Week" Detail was created by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to help ensure safety on NY State roads and Highways. The goal of this campaign, and enforcement year round, is to reduce speed related crashes and improve safe travel for drivers and passengers on New York’s roads. Speeding by all vehicle types, as well as other traffic violations, will be heavily enforced throughout the week in addition to normal year-round enforcement.
Approximately one third of all fatal crashes from year to year are the result of speeding. Troopers will also be watching for distracted or impaired drivers, vehicle occupants who are not properly buckled up, and drivers that are violating the “Move Over Law.”
