Super Bowl weekend crackdown on impaired driving

Increased patrols to tackle drunk driving Sunday in city

For those who are unaware, R.I.D.E. focuses on detecting and removing impaired drivers who have consumed drugs or too much alcohol from the roads.

10,497 people were killed in crashes that involved an impaired driver in 2016. The officers will be targeting drivers committing crimes involving the "fatal four".

Cuomo said during the 2017 Super Bowl campaign, state police arrested 110 people for impaired driving and issued more than 4,098 total tickets.

Sober designated drivers should be sure to carry the ball and refrain from drinking alcohol during the game. That means designating a sober driver or consider other ride options like Uber or Lyft.

"If you are caught driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you will go to jail", said Sheriff Bill Gore.

On Sunday afternoon, the New England Patriots will face the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl and many will gather to watch the game at parties that include lots of alcohol.

"Sometimes even the designated driver slips".

Troopers and local police say they will be looking for impaired drivers at checkpoints and with increased road patrols.
