New York State Police issued 11,946 tickets as a result of increased enforcement efforts over Memorial Day weekend.

Over 3,400 tickets were issued for speeding, 358 for distracted driving and more than 2,100 for seat belt violations.

Troopers also arrested 224 people for DWI.

State Police Superintendent Joseph D'Amico said, "Traffic safety is a priority of the New York State Police. Drunk, impaired or aggressive driving will not be tolerated on New York roadways. Campaigns like this holiday weekend enforcement should send a strong message to drivers who abuse our laws, you will be ticketed or arrested."
