Cops Will Be All Over The Highways In New York
There are still so many things to see and do before was can say summer is officially over in New York State. After the last two summers we had, this summer has been nothing short of fun! It has been great to be back out enjoying concerts, fairs and festivals in person again and it has been amazing to put the COVID pandemic behind us. But even though things have gotten back to a more normal feel, we still need to be responsible on the roadways.
As we approach the Labor Day holiday, police agencies across New York State will be on the lookout for impaired and drunk drivers.
According to reports, police will be taking part in the latest "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" STOP-DWI campaign. Police are going to be increasing patrols through September 5th in an effort to get drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol off the roads.
There are some major events this weekend here in The Empire State. From the largest county fair in Erie County to the NASCAR race at Watkins Glen and preseason football, police remind drivers to plan ahead or, better yet, get a ride if you plan to drink.
If you have been on the major routes around Buffalo, there are multiple signs posted reminding people to slow down as well. "It's Not A Race" and "Obey The Sign or Pay The Fine" are just two of the catchy reminders that we have seen in Western New York.
