State to Ramp Up DWI Enforcement Efforts for Holiday Season

By Staff

 

dwi_checkpoint_crackdown_heroNew York state will participate in the national “Drive Sober or get Pulled Over” enforcement campaign to crackdown on impaired driving this holiday season, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office stated.

As a result, drivers can expect sobriety checkpoints, and an increased number of troopers patrolling New York roadways from Friday, Dec.16, through Sunday, Jan. 1.

“Too often, impaired drivers cause accidents resulting in injury, death and heartbreak,” Gov. Cuomo stated. “Reckless driving is a crime, and this national crackdown will help strengthen our law enforcement during one of the busiest times of the year, to keep New Yorkers safe. I urge everyone to drive responsibly, and remain vigilant on the roads this holiday season.”

Troopers will be watching for distracted drivers, vehicle occupants who are not properly buckled up, and drivers violating the “move over law,” which requires motorists to exercise extreme caution when passing emergency vehicles that are stopped in or on the side of the road.

According to officials, both state police and local law enforcement agencies will be participating in the campaign.

Troopers will be using “marked state police vehicles” and “concealed identity traffic enforcement vehicles,” the state said.

During last year’s campaign, police issued more than 32,000 tickets, including more than 11,000 for speeding.
