Troopers Issue Nearly 7,900 Tickets Statewide During Annual Super Bowl DWI Crackdown

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced State Police issued 7,891 tickets and arrested 139 people for impaired driving during the Super Bowl weekend impaired driving crackdown. The STOP-DWI initiative started on Saturday, February 2, and continued through 4 a.m. on Monday, February 4, 2019. During the special enforcement period, which was funded by the Governor's Traffic Safety Committee, the New York State Police increased patrols and conducted sobriety checkpoints to deter, identify and arrest impaired drivers.

"Super Bowl weekend is one of the most popular events of the year but we want New Yorkers to enjoy it responsibly and we have zero tolerance for reckless or impaired driving," Governor Cuomo said. "These numbers show our efforts to aggressively enforce the law to keep our roads safe are working, and I commend the State Police for their dedication to protecting the lives of New Yorkers during this campaign and throughout the rest of the year."
