More than four dozen tickets were dished out by New York State Police toppers during a special speed detail in Northern Westchester.

On Saturday, Nov. 30, troopers from the Cortlandt barracks handed out a total of 56 tickets along the Route 9 corridor during the targeted enforcement period. Of those tickets, 49 were for speed-related infractions.

Police said that the "operation was conducted in furtherance of our mission to ensure highway safety for all users of the roadway.”

According to police, 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 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 three through 33.

The enforcement comes on the heels of other such details in Croton-on-Hudson, Hawthorne, I-684 and other roadways throughout Westchester.
