[ARCHIVED] NRPD Launches Enforcement Blitz During Statewide Speed Awareness Week Campaign


The New Rochelle Police Department will participate in NYS Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee (GTSC) Speed Awareness Week (August 1-7), a week-long enforcement initiative to crack down on speeding drivers and speed-related crashes. During the Speed Awareness Week blitz, officers will intensify enforcement of posted speed limits throughout the City.

“Speeding drivers put themselves, their passengers and other drivers at tremendous risk,” says Traffic Unit Supervisor Detective Sergeant, Myron Joseph. “Our goal is to save lives, and we’re putting all drivers on alert - the posted speed limit is the law.”

The intensified enforcement effort against speeding drivers underscores the severity of the problem, both locally and across the nation. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says 3 out of every 10 drivers are self-professed “speeders”. According to NHTSA, the economic cost to society from speed-related crashes is $52 billion annually.

When it comes to speeding: Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine.
