NY’s Super Bowl Sunday anti-DWI campaign led to 1,390 tickets

The New York State Police said 1,390 tickets were issued as a result of their Super Bowl Sunday STOP-DWI campaign, Armonk reported on February 7.

The campaign, which aimed to discourage, identify, and arrest impaired, speeding, and aggressive drivers, started at 12 p.m. on February 1 and lasted 12 hours until midnight. State authorities set up sobriety check points across the state, leading to the arrest of 31 drivers for DWI, 55 for not wearing seatbelts, 16 for violating the Move Over law, 408 for speeding, and 39 for distracted driving.

Being charged with a DWI may not only affect your personal and career life; it may also entail hefty legal fines that could be financially damaging for you.
