State Police Crackdown On Aggressive Driving During ‘Speed Week’

WIBX

New York State Police will conduct a week long initiative targeting speeding and aggressive drivers.
Speeding and other traffic violations will be heavily enforced with extra state troopers and unmarked patrol vehicles.

Fines for speeding and aggressive driving can reach up to one thousand dollars and add up to 11 points on your license.

“Drivers can prevent needless deaths and injuries by simply slowing down,” New York State Police Superintendent Joseph D’Amico said. “Our troopers are out there on New York roadways doing their part to keep the streets safe, and the public can too. By following posted speed limits and watching their speed, drivers will increase their chances of making it to their destination safely.”

Aggressive driving behavior that Troopers will target includes:

  • Excessive speed
  • Frequent or unsafe lane changes
  • Failure to signal
  • Tailgating
  • Failure to yield right of way
  • Disregarding traffic controls
  • Impaired driving
  • Cell phone/electronic device use

Here’s some tips to stay safe if you encounter an aggressive driver:

  • Remain calm
  • Keep your distance
  • Do NOT pass unless you have to
  • Change lance once it is safe (don’t jump lanes without looking)

The ‘Speed Week’ campaign will run from April 17 through April 24.
