Westchester County police crack down on 'obnoxious driving'
Have you noticed more reckless driving on the roads recently? So have Westchester County police.
And for the last few months, they've been cracking down on it.
Parts of the Saw Mill Parkway are hot spots for what police are calling "obnoxious driving."
This includes having a loud modified exhaust pipe, driving on the shoulder of the road and crossing over hazard markings to merge into traffic late.
Between mid-July and Labor Day last month, Westchester police gave out nearly 350 tickets for these violations -- far more than any previous year for that same period.
Police say they catch the most drivers breaking these laws on the Hutchison South at the Thruway and the Cross County at Yonkers Avenue.
Authorities say they will continue aggressively enforcing these driving rules going forward because they want to keep the roads safe for everyone.
