Every year around this time Governor Cuomo announces what is called speed week. In other words, slow down or you may end up with a ticket.

To make it a little bit harder for us here in the Capital Region, there is a ton of construction going on. We already have to drive on the Northway slower than we would like. Fifty-five already seemed slow, now it is forty-five. Our friends in blue are pretty harsh, as they should be, when it comes to speeding in a construction zone. Also remember, fines are doubled in these zones.

The police officers are going to be out in full force keeping their eye out for people speeding. I have a feeling they are going to be looking for more than just that too.

What the Governor calls "Speed Week" will be in effect until Wednesday, June 12th.
