New York State Kicks Off Impaired Driving Crackdown Through Labor Day

Yesterday began another statewide impaired driving crackdown that will run through Monday, September 2.

The STOP-DWI “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign is designed to reduce alcohol and other drug-related traffic crashes. It is the nation’s first and, to date, only self-sustaining impaired driving program. The program’s efforts are funded entirely from fines paid by convicted impaired drivers.

During the 2018 enforcement campaign, law enforcement throughout the state-issued 3,978 tickets for impaired driving and 165,531 tickets for other vehicle and traffic law violations.

Don’t wind up a statistic…Drive Safe!
