'Operation Hang-up' catches hundreds of drivers over Thanksgiving weekend

Over the long Thanksgiving weekend, law enforcement officials throughout the state of New York took part in an extensive campaign designed to enforce some of the more stringent vehicle traffic laws.

New traffic signs use poetry to promote safety message

As you navigate the streets of New York City, you will likely encounter a variety of signs announcing various vehicle traffic laws (i.e., speed limits, parking restrictions, handicap spaces, etc.) and warning of dangers to pedestrians. In general, these signs are fairly straightforward and understandably void of any sort of artistic flare. However, this may no longer be the case on many streets throughout the five boroughs

'Operation Hang-up' in effect this Thanksgiving weekend

Over the next few days, drivers all over the state of New York will be hitting the roads and highways for Thanksgiving travel. However, before heading out and driving back, motorists should know that law enforcement officials will be conducting a statewide campaign designed to enforce some of the more stringent vehicle traffic laws.

The iPhone 4S, Siri technology and New York's traffic laws

One of New York's better-known - and perhaps infamous - vehicle traffic laws is the prohibition against texting while driving.

Sen. Gillibrand actively promoting new teen driver safety law

While many people may not realize it, this week is National Teen Driver Safety Week.

Now, it appears as if this phenomenon is slowly spreading to other parts of the state.

Port Authority's major toll increase now a reality for NYC motorists

In vehicle traffic law news, motorists traveling to and from New York City are likely very irritated this morning but not because it's the start of a new workweek. Rather, they are likely irritated over having to pay substantially higher tolls on some of the city's busiest thoroughfares.

NYC comes in at No. 20 on 'worst drivers' list

A few days ago, Allstate Insurance Company released a highly anticipated and much discussed report ranking U.S. cities according to who has the so-called best and worst drivers. Here, "worst" does not mean cities where drivers openly flout the vehicle traffic laws or fail to comprehend the rules of the road. Rather, it means how accident-prone the drivers in a particular city happen to be.
