ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Police around New York state say they’ll be ramping up patrols this Thanksgiving to look for drunken or distracted drivers and underage drinkers.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo says state and local law enforcement agencies will be participating in the holiday crackdown, which begins Wednesday and runs through Sunday.

Officials say they’ll use unmarked cars, increased patrols, sobriety checkpoints and bar sweeps to find people breaking the law.

Cuomo says the actions will help keep New York’s roads and highways safe during one of the busiest travel times of the year.

During last year’s Thanksgiving crackdown police arrested more than 350 drivers for drunken or impaired driving.
