Currently and through next Wednesday (June 15, 2018), New York State troopers will be out in force looking, in particular, for violations of the following Vehicle And Traffic Laws: drinking and driving offenses, speeding, illegal use of a cell phone or electronic device, failure to wear seat belts, and failure to “move over”. These troopers will be out there to discourage these unsafe practices and issue traffic tickets.
Troopers will be using marked and un-marked cars during this campaign, and are expected to issue a lot of traffic tickets. During a Speed Week last year, state police handed out over 19,000 moving violations, including 7,900+ for speeding, and 580+ for electronic device and cell phone violations.
To avoid a traffic ticket, you should drive extra safe including slowing down, putting your phones away (i.e., out of plain sight) and moving over to emergency vehicles on the side of the road.
