New York- New York State Police will be keeping a close watch for drunk drivers this Super Bowl weekend.
Additional check points for DWI are scheduled to be conducted across the state beginning Friday, February 1, and continuing through Monday, February 4, 2013.
“Many New Yorkers will get together with friends and family during this Super Bowl season, and we encourage all to enjoy these gatherings,” said Thruway Authority Executive Thomas J. Madison. “But, remember that drinking and driving don’t mix, and always, have a designated driver in your starting line-up.”
State Police report drunk drivers cause 17,000 deaths across the U.S. each year.
