    (WKTV) - Police officers say they're focusing their attention on those who are unsafe on the roadways this summer with a new campaign to curb aggressive driving that will go hand in hand with their "Buckle Up New York" campaign.


    State Police say there are too many accidents, and too many close calls that can be avoided. To help deter those potential accidents, as well as try to make the roads a bit safer, State Police and the State Department of Transportation have kicked off an Aggressive Driving campaign.

    Officials say that from now until the end of the summer, they will be targeting the major roadways throughout the Mohawk Valley looking for drivers who run red lights, tailgate, or are just being too aggressive.

    "Those are things we see and those are things that turn into speeding, turn into failure to yield," said Captain Frank Coots of the New York State Police. "Those are those sections of law we are looking for to make sure people are being safe."

    New York State Department of Transportation officials, who joined police at a press conference Monday, say 40,000 people a year die, nationwide, in motor vehicle accidents. Officials are hoping to reduce that number by 10% each year.
