ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Police in New York will be on the lookout for drunken drivers on Super Bowl Sunday.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says state police will join with local forces to increase road patrols and sobriety checkpoints. The campaign runs from noon to midnight on Sunday.

State police made nearly 100 impaired driving arrests during last year’s campaign.

State officials say almost a third of fatal crashes nationwide in 2012 involved alcohol-impaired-drivers.
