 NYSACOP GTSC Law Enforcement Liaison Report

By Dominick Macherone

August 1-7, 2019 - GTSC Speed Awareness Week Enforcement Mobilization”: Speed continues to be a predominant factor in traffic crashes in New York State. In 2017, nearly one-third (31%) of all traffic fatalities in New York were caused by speeding. 308 people lost their lives in these preventable collisions. The number of fatal crashes caused by unsafe speed increased during the summer months with the highest totals in July, August and September.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says 3 in 10 drivers speed. These drivers are also more likely to engage in other risky behaviors (no seat belt, drinking and driving, or using a cell phone while driving).

The GTSC invites law enforcement to participate in Speed Awareness Week – a high-visibility enforcement campaign aimed at reducing incidence of speed-related crashes.
