Police Across New York State Planning ‘Super’ Crackdown
Police in the Hudson Valley and across New York State are warning of an increased police presence across the Empire State.
The big game is coming up on Sunday, and police across the state are going to be cracking down.
Super Bowl DWI Crackdown Planned For New York State
Police across New York State will be looking for drunk drivers during the upcoming Super Bowl weekend.
Anyone out on the roads can expect to see increased patrols from Friday until early Monday morning as part of the latest STOP-DWI campaign.
Police remind all to make sure you have a designated driver or by using a taxi or rideshare service to get home safely.
Drivers who see any suspicious or dangerous activities while traveling should dial 911 right away.
Dutchess County Participating
Dutchess County officials told Hudson Valley Post the importance of these joint STOP-DWI efforts.
"While STOP-DWI efforts across New York have led to significant reductions in the numbers of alcohol and drug-related fatalities, still too many lives are being lost because of crashes caused by drunk or impaired drivers. Highly visible, highly publicized efforts like the STOP-DWI High Visibility Community Engagement Campaign aim to further reduce the incidence of drunk and impaired driving," Dutchess County officials stated in a press release.
Municipal law enforcement agencies across Dutchess County will join agencies across the state and will be out in force in this coordinated effort to aggressively target those who put lives in danger, Dutchess officials confirmed.
"Our roads must be safe for all Dutchess County residents, and we thank our dedicated men and women of law enforcement for working every day to get impaired drivers off the street. No matter who you root for in the Super Bowl, we all win when you designate a driver," County Executive Sue Serino said.
In 2022, New York State Police handed out nearly 1,000 tickets during the Super Bowl DWI crackdown.
