State Police Continue St. Patrick's Day Weekend DWI Initiative
State Police are reminding drivers that there are increased patrols this weekend "to combat drunk, impaired, and reckless driving."
The NYSP says that during the enforcement initiative conducted during the same period in 2021 286 people were arrested by State Police alone. Almost five hundred tickets were issued for distracted driving and more than 19,000 tickets were issued in all.
Authorities remind drivers that one person is killed every 52 minutes in an alcohol-related crash. "Every one of those deaths," police say, "is preventable."
In a written release the NYSP says:
"Choosing to drive drunk can ruin or end your life or someone else’s. This St. Patrick’s Day, if you drink and drive, you face jail time, the loss of your license, a higher insurance rate, and dozens of unanticipated expenses. An impaired driving charge carries a maximum fine of $10,000."
