Drivers could be automatically ticketed for speeding in New York
Drivers can now be automatically ticketed for speeding on some of the biggest highways in the state.
The state's Department of Transportation is trying a new automated work zone speed enforcement program after legislation the governor signed in 2021.
It's a five-year program to keep highways safer by slowing drivers down in work zones, where there were more than 50 injuries in 2021.
The system uses radar to determine whether a car is speeding.
After an initial warning period, drivers could face a $50 fine for their first violation. The second violation is a $75 fine if within an 18-month period of the first violation. The third and subsequent violations are a $100 fine if within an 18-month period of the first violation.
The enforcement areas rotate, but this is the list the DOT has released for the week of Thanksgiving.
