More than 1,900 speeding violation tickets were issued to thruway motorists across New York State during the recent statewide “Operation Summer Brake” enforcement effort held the last week in August, the New York State Thruway Authority and state police Troop T announced.

The initiative targeted prevention of crash-causing behavior, including aggressive driving, speeding, and driving while intoxicated.

Posted speed limits in highway construction or maintenance work zones must be obeyed, even when workers are not present.

Fines double for speeding offenses in a construction zone. Two convictions for speeding in work zones within 18 months results in automatic suspension of a driver’s license.
