Operation Summer Brake,” an eight-day initiative promoting work zone safety, will take place Monday, Aug. 27, and continue through Monday, Sept. 3, 2012, the New York State Thruway Authority and State Police Troop T announced. 

“As part of ‘Operation Summer Brake,’ the Thruway Authority encourages motorists to be alert on the road, drive responsibly, obey posted speed limits, and avoid all distractions to ensure a safe trip to their destination,” said Thruway Authority Executive Director Thomas J. Madison.

From Aug. 27 - Sept. 3, members of Troop T will be stepping up enforcement efforts on the Thruway.

“Throughout this period of expanded enforcement, the dedicated members of Troop T will be watching for those who are intoxicated, speeding, or driving aggressively,” said Sgt.
