NY Troopers To Crack Down On Impaired Driving

Dec 27, 2018

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has announced that New York State Police will increase patrols to crack down on impaired driving through the end of the year.

Officials say motorists  can expect to see sobriety checkpoints, along with more troopers on roadways during the campaign,  part of the national "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" initiative, which runs through Tuesday, January 1st.

In addition to the DWI checkpoints and patrols, Troopers using marked and unmarked vehicles will be watching for distracted drivers, passengers who are not properly buckled up and drivers violating the "Move Over Law," which requires motorists to use extreme caution when passing emergency vehicles that are stopped in or on the side of the road. State Police say they’ll also conduct underage drinking enforcement details statewide.
