Dutchess County, New York – On June 10, 2019, the New York State Police conducted a speed enforcement operation on the Taconic State Parkway in Dutchess County.
 
The operation was conducted in furtherance of our mission to ensure highway safety for all users of the roadway.  A total of 128 tickets were issued during the targeted enforcement period, 111 of which for speed related infractions.

Speeding is listed as a contributing factor in nearly one third of all fatal crashes in New York State.  According to the Institute for Traffic Safety Management and Research (ITSMR) at the University at Albany, in 2017, 301 people were killed and 18,178 were injured in New York State in speed-related crashes.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for people ages 3 - 33.
