WXHC spoke with State Trooper Aga Dembinska and DOT regional representative Curtis Jenner for more on “Operation Hard Hat”
The annual traffic enforcement detail targets reckless drivers within work zones on state highways, a joint initiative between State Police, the Department of Transportation and the Thruway Authority.
Troopers will be out patrolling work zones dressed as highway maintenance workers, in order to better identify motorists who disobey flagging personnel, speed through the work zone or violate the state’s Move Over Law.
Dembinska is public information officer for Troop C (Cortland, Tompkins, Broome, Tioga, Chenango Otsego and Delaware Counties) and Jenner for DOT Region 3 (Central NY).
