State police said the patrols were part of an effort to “reduce serious and fatal crashes on Park Avenue.”

Additional patrols will target high-incidence areas on many stretches of Southern State Parkway during rush hour and “when these crashes occur,” state police said.

Police will be looking for aggressive drivers, speeders, drunk/drug drivers, and distracted drivers.

“Tragedies on our public roads could have been prevented if people obeyed the rules of the road,” the state police said. “Driving is a shared responsibility. Don’t make a bad decision that could cost someone their life.

“Slow down, put down your phone, put on your seat belt, and drive consciously.

“If you drink too much, ask someone sober to drive you home, whether it’s family, friends, a taxi or a ride-sharing service. No excuses.”
