Do You Have A Leadfoot? Better Slow Down This Week!
Are you a led foot? If you have the need, the need for speed, you better slow it down for the next few days! Actually, as I was driving into Q 1057 this morning I noticed a lot more State Troopers with vehicles pulled over than normal. So, I thought I’d find out why.
According to New York State Police website and www.hamlethub.com there will be increased speed enforcement from Thursday, August 1st through Wednesday, August 7th. This will be with both marked and unmarked trooper vehicles.
“The goal of this detail is to reduce speed-involved crashes and improve safe highway travel for all motorists.”
I’m sure it’s no coincidence that this extra enforcement coincides with the NASCAR race at Watkins Glen. If you’ve ever been to a NASCAR race you know everyone thinks it’s a race there and home on the highways! Oh, and the latest Fast and Furious movie is coming out this weekend....that always gets people driving like idiots!
Speed Awareness Week was pretty successful last year with a total of 27,584 tickets issued by the State Troopers. So, slow it down and be careful!
