NYSP Issue About 1,450 Tickets During Speed Week, Operation Hang Up

More drivers are distracted on New York roads.
More drivers are distracted on New York roads. This comes from the two New York State Police safety initiatives, Speed Week and Operation Hang Up.

"The results of Speed Week and Operation Hang Up demonstrate that many drivers are still not getting the message that distracted and aggressive behavior behind the wheel has no place on New York's roadways," Governor Cuomo said. "We are committed to curbing this reckless behavior and will continue to crack down on drivers who put the lives of their fellow motorists at risk, and hold accountable those that choose to ignore the laws designed to keep New Yorkers safe."

While we don't know if this is an increase locally, statewide, there was a 300% percent increase from last year's Operation Hang Up.

Here's the breakdown from Troop B which covers Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, St. Lawrence:
