ALBANY, NY — The New York State Thruway Authority and State Police Troop T Thursday announced that “Operation Summer Brake” will take place beginning Monday, August 25, 2008 through Friday, August 29.

“As the summer travel season comes to a close, the Authority reminds motorists to drive responsibly and to remain alert and aware of their surroundings,” said Thruway Authority Executive Director Michael Fleischer. “Although everyone is eager to get to their destination, please remember to be cautious while traveling through construction zones, always wear your seat belts, and never drink and drive.”

From August 25 through August 29, Members of State Police Troop T, dedicated solely to conducting speed and aggressive driving enforcement, will be deployed daily along the New York State Thruway.

“Troop T will be out in full force patrolling the highway, as well as watching for intoxicated drivers, speeders and conducting seat belt checks,” said State Police Troop T Major Robert Meyers. “The warmer weather brings more motorists out onto the roads and ensuring everyone’s safety is Troop T’s number one priority.”
