In addition to the DWI checkpoints and patrols, troopers will also be watching for distracted or impaired drivers, vehicle occupants who are not properly buckled up and drivers violating the Move Over Law.
State Police Superintendent George Beach II said, "Traffic safety is a top priority, and each day Troopers work to ensure the well-being of all those who utilize New York’s roadways. During this campaign, we will step up our enforcement efforts to remove intoxicated, drug impaired and distracted drivers from our roadways. While we want everyone to enjoy the final few weeks of summer, we want them to do so responsibly."
