On January 17, law enforcement in several states stepped up enforcement of speed limits on U.S. Highway 20.
It takes place in the following states:
Officers will use both State Police marked vehicles and vehicles with hidden traffic identification (CITE) to detect vehicles that break the law.
“Initiatives like this provide a unified effort in raising awareness about the dangers of speeding and reckless driving,” said New York State Police Acting Superintendent Steven A. Nigrelli.
“In 2020, 11,258 individuals were killed in speed-related accidents across the country. Speeding endangers, not only the speeder, but it also compromises the safety of other motorists. We urge New Yorkers to make safety their top priority and be mindful of the speed limit, put their phones down, and be aware and alert.”
