Carmel Police, Sheriff Deputies to conduct DWI patrols this St. Patrick's Day

There will be more police on the road today than usual.  The Putnam County Sheriff's Office and Carmel Police Department are increasing patrols for drunk drivers along area roads this St Patrick's Day holiday.  The announcement is aimed at deterring intoxicated or impaired driving. 


It's part of the New York statewide STOP DWI Crackdown effort.  There will also be some sobriety checkpoints set up.


Police said historically, holiday festivities give rise to increased incidents of impaired driving and drinking related crashes.  Research shows that high-visibility enforcement can reduce drunk driving fatalities by as much as 20 percent.


Sheriff Donald Smith says they want to let people know in advance as a deterrent to drunk driving, and to remind people that they must drink responsibly or make appropriate plans now to either have a designated driver or use a taxi.
