THE BRONX - Drivers with the need for speed will want to slow down as the state kicks off its "Speed Week" campaign. 

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is cracking down on speeding and aggressive driving for the next seven days by putting state police officers on high alert. 

Driver caught speeding or driving aggressively will be fined as much as $1,000 and receive up to 11 points on their driver's license. The fines will vary based on the rate of speed. 

The goal is to reduce speed-related crashes, and make travel safer for all drivers and passengers across New York State. 

State police issued more than 9,600 tickets during the same campaign last August.
