ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - State officials say a crackdown on impaired driving on New York roads will continue through New Year’s Day.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says state police will boost patrols into Jan. 1 to look for motorists driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The Democrat says the enforcement effort is part of the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign.

State troopers will be conducting DWI patrols and checkpoints into Tuesday, while also being on the lookout for distracted drivers and improperly restrained vehicle occupants.

State police also plan to watch for drivers violating the state’s Move Over Law and will conduct underage drinking enforcement details as New Year’s Eve approaches.

Last year’s anti-DWI campaign held during the holidays resulted in nearly 650 arrests for driving while intoxicated.
