A couple of months ago I posted the video of a guy claiming to be going 145mph on I-84.  Well, the New York State Troopers have announced that this is "speed week." They are going to be cracking down on speeders here in the Hudson Valley for the next 7 days!

The troopers say that way to many of us are kind of heavy on the pedal. You can still get ticketed for cell phone use and all the other infractions, but they are really focusing on aggressive, fast driving. The fact is speed kills.  It also causes a lot of terrible accidents that don't kill, but cause severe damage. None of us want that heartbreak.




I hope you take it a bit slower.  You'll save gas and avoid a ticket.  You might find that you like driving the speed limit!  It couldn't hurt to try :)
