driving enforcement campaign
Major Christopher L. Cummings, Troop "A" Commander announces that the New York State Police in Troop "A" are participating in a national impaired driving enforcement campaign called the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over National Crack-down."
Troop "A" encompasses Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Gene-see, Niagara, Orleans and Wyoming Counties in Western New York.
The effort began on Dec. 14, and runs through New Year's Day. More than 20,000 police agencies nationwide are expected to participate.
Around the state, the New York State Police are planning 30 sobriety checkpoints, 10 saturation details, 18 underage drinking details, and 41 additional dedicated local DWI patrols.
Saturation details consist of multiple roving units that target a specific area of focus. It is a massive effort supported largely through grants from the Governor's Traffic Safety Committee, aimed at preventing tragedies during the Holiday Season.
There are a number of these concentrated details planned throughout Western New York and they will be conducted for the remainder of December.
Last year during the Holiday enforcement effort, troopers made 526 arrests for DWI, and issued a total of 35,496 tickets.
