A Thanksgiving holiday traffic enforcement effort will be conducted by New York State Police from Wednesday through Sunday, in an effort to prevent tragedies caused by impaired, distracted, aggressive or reckless driving. 

 

During this enforcement period, Troopers will be highly visible, and drivers can expect a number of sobriety checkpoints and additional DWI patrols.  Drivers are asked to remember to put away your smartphones, follow posted speed limits, make certain that all occupants are buckled up, and move over when you see emergency and highway maintenance vehicles on the side of the road.

 

During last Thanksgiving's enforcement campaign, New York State Police troopers arrested 218 drivers for DWI, issued 5,910 speeding tickets, 732 tickets for distracted driving, and 204 tickets for the move over law.
