State Police said Monday that troopers arrested 1,134 motorists for alleged speeding, 43 who were accused of driving under the influence and investigated 562 accidents, which included one fatality.

Last year, State Police made 1,611 arrests for speeding and 62 for driving under the influence. Two deaths were reported among 412 accidents.

State Police say they’ll continue traffic enforcement until the end of the holiday season.
