New York "Speed Week" Crackdown Is Underway

(Albany, NY)  --  State police are cracking down on lead foot drivers as part of "Speed Week."  

Governor Cuomo says through June 13th, state troopers will be using both marked and undercover cars to stop speeding and aggressive drivers who are  putting others at risk on the roads.  

Cuomo notes more than 42-thousand  people die in traffic crashes each year across the country, and speeding  is listed as a contributing factor in nearly one third of all fatal  crashes in New York.  He says last summer's speed week effort ended with  more than 21-thousand traffic tickets, and about half were for speeding  or distracted driving.
