DWI Arrests and Traffic Tickets Issued
Starting on December 14, 2012 the New York State Police commenced and engaged
in a statewide program called 'Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.'
During the weeks that the program was in place the State Troopers actively
patrolled highways and secondary roads in an effort to target and arrest
people who were driving while intoxicated (DWI). In many Counties, the
State Police set up and manned more than 25 sobriety checkpoints in areas
where higher than normal DWI accidents,
DWI arrests and traffic tickets have been issued in the past.
Additionally, the troopers were charged with issuing tickets for
traffic violations, including speeding, not wearing seat belts or properly restraining children
in vehicles, moving violations and other traffic violations.
33,000 total traffic tickets were issued by the State Troopers. More than
10,000 drivers were ticketed for speeding violations, not wearing seat
belts or properly restraining children in vehicles.
There were over 500 people arrested and charged with the misdemeanor of DWI.
