TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – New York State Police say they're going to be cracking down on cell phone-using motorists this week.

Police on the New York State Thruway Authority plan to begin “ Operation Hang Up ” on Monday, with additional patrols continuing through April 28 to target distracted drivers.

“Cell phone use and texting are responsible for a significant proportion of traffic crashes, injuries and deaths, and these behaviors continue to increase despite their obvious danger,” according to the New York State Police.

NYS Police Troop T issued 4,664 tickets for cell phone violations in 2012.

State officials say reminders will be posted throughout the New York State Thruway during the campaign.
