The highway is patrolled by New York State Police and Chemung County Sheriff’s Office. They conduct many traffic stops for motorists speeding in the 80-90 mph range.

Some traffic cases originate from local town and village streets. The busy roads include New York State Route 13 and New York State Route 14 (Westinghouse Road/Watkins Road/Corning Road).
