State and local law enforcement will be on high alert this weekend, cracking down on drunk and impaired driving for the upcoming St. Paddy’s Day weekend.
The crackdown will run today (March 15) through Monday.
Governor Cuomo said yesterday that drivers can expect a number of sobriety checkpoints and additional DWI patrols on the roads.
If you do plan on having some good ol’ Irish fun this weekend, make sure you plan ahead to have safe transportation.
During last year’s St. Paddy’s Day weekend, State Troopers alone made 243 arrests for DWI and issued nearly 13,000 tickets statewide.
