A speed awareness campaign in underway statewide. Governor Andrew Cuomo announced beefed up patrols to enforce speed limits, when data shows that fatal crashes due to unsafe speed increases during the summer months.

Speed limits are not a suggestion, they are the law and they save lives,” Cuomo said. “There is no excuse for driving at high speeds — it’s unnecessary and endangers everyone on the road — and I urge New Yorkers to be smart and slow down because it’s not worth risking lives to save a few seconds on your next commute or trip to the store.”
