State Police issued nearly 22,000 tickets during the June “Speed Week” campaign.  The special traffic enforcement period to crack down on speeding and aggressive drivers was held June 7 through the 13th.  Troopers ticketed over 9,400 drivers for speeding, arrested 268 people for DWI and wrote 695 tickets for distracted driving.  They also investigated 315 personal injury accidents, which resulted in 412 injuries.  “Reckless driving can lead to tragedy and potential life altering consequences for drivers and passengers on New York’s roadways,” Governor Andrew Cuomo said.  “I applaud the State Police and their partners in law enforcement for keeping dangerous drivers accountable and for their continued commitment to making our streets safer.”
