D.O.T. : Statement On Workzone Speeding  

In one month of our Automated Work Zone Speed Cameras going live, sixty drivers were caught in work zones going faster than 80 MPH, and one was going 99 MPH. Speed is the number one factor in work zone crashes, and with our road crews working only a few feet from these speeding vehicles, we all need to do our part to protect them.  In 2021, NYSDOT and the Thruway Authority reported 378 work zone intrusions, which means a vehicle entered the part of the road closed for construction. More than 50 of those times, the driver or a worker was injured.
