Police To Crackdown On Impaired Driving Through Halloween
State Police and local law enforcement are increasing patrols to crack down on impaired driving and underage drinking through Halloween.
The special enforcement campaign begins today and runs through Friday, November 1st.
Motorists can expect a number of sobriety checkpoints and additional DWI patrols during this period.
State Police will also be targeting the illegal sale of alcohol to minors through underage drinking enforcement details statewide.
And law enforcement will be looking for motorists who are using their phones and other electronic devices while behind the wheel.
"With this increased enforcement campaign, our goal is to help ensure New Yorkers have a fun and safe Halloween," Governor Andrew Cuomo said. "We have zero tolerance for impaired driving, and if your Halloween celebrations include alcohol, plan ahead for a safe ride home with a sober driver. Those who take the risk and drive impaired will be caught and punished to the fullest extent of the law."
