‘Operation Work Brake’ results in 2,500 tickets

From June 9 to 13, the New York State Police in Troop T boosted patrols along the 570 mile state Thruway system as they launched “Operation Spring Brake.”

The campaign focused on speeding and aggressive drivers in and around work zones. During the campaign, Troop T issued more than 2,500 traffic tickets, more than half for speed-related violations in and around active work zones.

The goal of the program is to raise awareness of the presence of workers in construction zones and reduce the number of hazardous violations in and around work zones.
