New York State has set up dozens of speed trap cameras that will automatically send out tickets over the busy Memorial Day Weekend.

We've told you before about the Department of Transportation's new program that captures unsuspecting speeders on camera and tickets the owners of those vehicles without them even knowing it.

This program has ramped up even more in the week leading up to what experts to be one of the busiest Memorial Day Weekends on record. It's anticipated that drivers will be clogging up roadways throughout New York state as residents seek to kick off the unofficial start of summer over an extended three days off.


Hefty Speeding Fines Could Add Up Over The Long Weekend

While being captured by an automated speeding ticket camera won't affect your insurance rates or add points to your license, it can result in an expensive fine. First-time offenders will receive a $50 fine in the mail. If it's your second time being caught by a speed camera, that fine will increase to $75. Three or more speeding tickets within a year and a half will earn you a $100 fine.
