NY troopers plan increased enforcement of traffic law

New York state troopers will be on the lookout for those who do not follow the law when approaching first responder and other emergency vehicles on roadways. Troopers will also be tracking speeders for traffic violations more closely. The "Move Over" law was passed in 2008 after the deaths of two state troopers. The law requires that a driver approaching a scene with flashing lights, stopped emergency vehicles or police cruisers on the shoulder of the road, slow down and if possible, move one lane over away from the scene. In 2012, emergency vehicles with amber lights were included in the law. This means the law applies for tow trucks and other vehicles.

Therefore, many of your neighbors are instilling rules for their new drivers this summer. According to the Teen Safe Driving Coalition, the risk of a teen driver crashing goes up 48 percent for each additional passenger they have in the vehicle with them. That's why some parents do not allow any passengers in the car with their young drivers.

New York says, 'Hang up your hand-held'

New York State Police issued 3,172 tickets for texting and driving violations during the last week of April. Of those, 105 were in Dutchess County. The second Operation Hang Up was funded by Governor Cuomo's Traffic Safety Committee through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Distracted Driving Enforcement Grant. The goal is to allow state police and other law enforcement organizations focus on distracted driving traffic violations and supplement their regular enforcement efforts.
