Drivers face crackdown during Memorial Day weekendPosted: Updated:
State police are out in full force to keep Westchester and Hudson Valley roads safe during the Memorial Day weekend.
Troopers from the Somers Barracks say using laser guns to catch speeding drivers on major roads, like I-684, is necessary. They pulled over a driver Sunday going 90 mph.
Troopers are also on the look out for motorists who drive recklessly. "We're looking for aggressive drivers weaving in and out of traffic, changing lanes and driving [unsafe]," a trooper said.
Law enforcement is also using checkpoints to ensure people are wearing seat belts and not driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
