Police To Increase DWI Patrols During Super Bowl Weekend
State Police and local law enforcement agencies statewide will be cracking down on impaired and reckless driving during Super Bowl weekend.
The STOP-DWI campaign will include underage drinking enforcement, along with increased patrols and sobriety checkpoints.
The enforcement initiative is funded by the Governor's Traffic Safety Committee.
"The Super Bowl is one of the most popular events of the year, and we encourage New Yorkers to enjoy it responsibly," Governor Cuomo said. "If you will be drinking, don't get behind the wheel. New York has zero tolerance for impaired driving, and State Police will be out in force this weekend to ensure everyone has a safe ride home."
The campaign will run from 3 a.m. Saturday, February 3rd, until 3 a.m. on Monday, February 5th.
During the 2017 Super Bowl campaign, State Police arrest 110 people for impaired driving and issued more than 4,098 tickets.
