From Wednesday through Sunday, the New York State Police issued 11,198 tickets during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend traffic enforcement.

During the campaign, the New York State Police supplemented regular patrols statewide focusing on speed enforcement, impaired driving, underage drinking, and distracted driving.

The effort incorporated fixed sobriety checkpoints, an underage drinker initiative and the "Operation Hang Up" initiative, which targets distracted drivers by utilizing Concealed Identity Traffic Enforcement (CITE) patrol vehicles to better locate drivers talking or texting on  hand held devices. These unmarked vehicles blend in with every day traffic but are unmistakable as emergency vehicles once the emergency lighting is activated.

Troopers also were on the look-out for those not properly buckled up or violating the “Move Over Law.”

There were 4,237 tickets issued for speeding, 565 for distracted driving, 172 for driving while intoxicated and 138 issued for drivers who failed to move over for emergency vehicles.
