Broome Sheriff’s Deputies Write Over 140 in Aggressive Driving Initiative
The Broome County Sheriff’s office reports over 140 tickets were written during a recent initiative targeting aggressive driving.
The number of highway patrols were increased between June 30 and July 7 to concentrate efforts on cracking down on violators of traffic laws.
Of the 144 tickets, the most, 26, were written for failure to obey a traffic control device. Others were written for speeding in a work zone, failure to obey the Move Over Law, not using a seat belt, using a cell phone or texting while driving, reckless driving and improper passing.
Saturation patrols are normally scheduled to coincide with major holidays.
