New York (STL.News) Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that state and local law enforcement agencies across New York will be stepping up patrols to crack down on impaired driving during the Super Bowl weekend.  The enforcement campaign will run from Friday, February 5, through Monday, February 8.  This safety initiative is designed to reduce alcohol and drug-related traffic crashes.  It is sponsored by STOP-DWI with funding from the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee.

“Super Bowl weekend is an exciting time of year, and I urge all New Yorkers to celebrate responsibly,” Governor Cuomo said.  “New York has zero tolerance for impaired driving, and law enforcement will be on the road all weekend long to help keep New Yorkers safe.  If you drink and drive, you will get caught, so avoid costly and potentially deadly consequences by planning for a safe ride home.”

During the 2020 Super Bowl campaign, law enforcement throughout the state issued 26,375 tickets for vehicle and traffic law violations, including 850 arrests for DWI.
