State Police Car

Just over 13,000 tickets were issued by the New York State Police for their annual St. Patrick’s Day DWI crackdown.

This year’s additional enforcement period, which was funded by the Governor's Traffic Safety Committee, extra Troopers were on the road and stationed at sobriety checkpoints to arrest impaired drivers. State Police officials report a total of 259 people who were arrested for DWI and investigated 594 automobile crashes, including 85 crashes that resulted in injuries during the campaign.

Thankfully, officials are also reporting that there were no fatal crashes during the enforcement period. As part of the crackdown, Troopers also targeted speeding, aggressive and distracted drivers across the State.
