WATCH: State Police, DOT plan crackdown on work zone violations in Rochester, Hornell

State Police and the state Department of Transportation on Tuesday launched “Operation Hardhat,” a joint effort to crack down on work zone violations and highlight the importance of safe driving through active construction and maintenance work zones on state highways.

Members of State Police Troop E will patrol several active work zones throughout DOT’s Rochester and Hornell regions this week to ticket motorists who disobey flagging personnel, speed through the work zone or violate the state’s Move Over Law, which applies to emergency and work vehicles.
