“Operation Work Brake,” a five-day enforcement campaign promoting safety by cracking down on speeders in and around construction zones, will kick off Monday, July 9 and run through Friday, July 13.

“Operation Work Brake” is intended to “put the brakes” on crash-causing behaviors, and to save lives. During the five-day work initiative, additional members of Troop T, dedicated solely to conducting speed and aggressive driving enforcement, will be positioned daily along the Thruway. New York State Police Troop T issued 1,354 tickets during the 2011 “Speed Week” campaign.
