Cuomo Ramps Up New York State DWI Police Enforcement
Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that he is ramping up the New York State Police and law enforcement agency regarding their enforcement towards impaired driving from Wednesday, August 19 through Monday, September 7.
"There is no excuse for driving impaired - it's reckless and puts not only yourself but everyone else on the road in danger," Governor Cuomo said. "We have zero tolerance for this irresponsible behavior, and we're stepping up patrols to send a clear message: If you drink and drive, you will be caught, and you will be held accountable."
This enforcement falls under the STOP-DWI "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign designed to reduce alcohol and drug-induced driver accidents.
Cuomo reminds New Yorkers of an app that enables them to report a suspected impaired driver, review information regarding DWI's and locate and call a taxi or rideshare service.
