Work Zone Speeding Ticket Patrol Begins Today

The New York State Thruway Authority has announced the beginning of "Operation Work Brake", a week-long campaign to promote safety in Work Zones. A special group of New York State Troopers, that issued nearly 1,500 tickets during this year's "Speed Week", will be helping enforce speed limits in construction zones along the Thruway:

"Throughout the enforcement period, Troop T will be out in full force patrolling the highway, as well as monitoring construction zones," said State Police Troop T Commander Major Robert C. Meyers. "Safety is Troop T's number one priority. We ask motorists do their part by using caution while driving through the construction zones. Remember, traffic fines are double in work zones. Motorists who speed; drive distracted or are simply careless when traveling in a work zone pose a great safety risk to highway workers and other drivers. There is no excuse for that type of driving."

 There are several work zones currently in the Albany area, most notably on I-787 in downtown Albany and the Menands area. Fuller Road has also been under construction. If get a Work Zone speeding ticket in the Albany City Court, Menands Village Court, or other local traffic court, please contact our office for help.
