NEW YORK, NY, August 17, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The New York governor has implemented many new Department of Motor Vehicle initiatives. He has implemented and enforced such measures as multiple DWI license revocations, increased penalties for texting and driving, and Leandra's law, making it a felony for people to drive intoxicated with a minor child in the car.
The "Speed Week" campaign runs from August 10 - 17 and coincides with the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series at Watkins Glen International Raceway.
The Governor has stated that "the State Police will be increasing enforcement to put the brakes on drivers who ignore the law and speed. So slow down and drive safely or you will be pulled over."
Additionally he added that "approximately one third of all fatal crashes from year to year are the result of speeding. Troopers will also be watching for distracted or impaired drivers, vehicle occupants who are not properly buckled up, and drivers that are violating the "Move Over Law."
The "move over law" requires that drivers move over for emergency vehicles or be subject to a moving violation that carries a fine and points against your license.
As part of the deterrent and enforcement initiative the Governor stated that drivers can expect to see more troopers on major highways during this detail. Unmarked patrol vehicles will also be out in force.
