The New York State Police along with local agencies have announced that they will be out in stepped up patrols to help crack down on drunk driving and impaired driving now through the Labor Day holiday.

Ways that the police will working to reduce impaired driving during the enforcement period include, sobriety check points and additional patrols.

Here is what Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro had to say about the STOP DWI enforcement, from a press release:

“With Labor Day marking the unofficial end of our summer season, we acknowledge and applaud the efforts of law enforcement to keep our roads safe for all. The STOP-DWI crackdown campaign enhances our efforts to eliminate preventable injuries and deaths.”

This enforcement has been made possible with the support of the New York State STOP-DWI Association, the STOP-DWI Foundation and monies from the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee. There will be additional STOP DWI enforcement initiatives at Halloween and the December holidays.
