New York State police are boosting patrols along the Thruway today through June 13.
They're targeting speeding motorists and aggressive driving in and around construction zones.
Road crews face constant dangers everyday 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, police said.
During the same five-day campaign in April 2014, Troop T issued more than 2,000 tickets, more than half of which were for speed related violations in and around active work zones.
