ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York State Police say they will be stepping up road patrols over the holiday weekend.

State police say they will join with local agencies Wednesday through Sunday to crack down on impaired, distracted and speeding drivers. Troopers say they will supplement regular patrols statewide and set up sobriety checkpoints. They also will use unmarked vehicles.

The Thanksgiving holiday weekend is typically one of the busiest travel times of the year. State troopers last year report arresting 172 drivers for DWI over the weekend and also issuing 4,237 speeding tickets and 565 tickets for distracted driving.
