Albany- State troopers in Albany are doing a good job keeping you safe during the holidays.

The Governor's Office of Highway Safety recognized the Albany Post today for leadership in Operation Zero Tolerance.

Last year around July 4th and Christmas, Albany troopers issued more than 1,400 citations, including 50 seat belt violations, 12 DUI's and almost 500 speeding tickets.

"What these officers have done is take the message to the street through their efforts to let people know if you drive impaired, be it alcohol or drugs, you will go to jail," said Robert Mikell, Deputy Director for the Office of Highway Safety."

Statewide, law enforcement officers issued almost 30,000 speeding citations during the campaign last quarter.
