Operation Hardhat is a regular initiative where State Police officers wear reflective vests and hardhats in work zones to crack down on dangerous and reckless behavior.

During yesterday’s detail, Troopers wrote sixteen tickets. Three of those tickets were for speeding and two for using a hand-held cell phone while driving.
