Drive sober or you will get pulled over! That is the message that the police across New York State want you to know before you head out this weekend.

A major component of New York's efforts to combat impaired driving is the Special Traffic Options Program for Driving While Intoxicated. The state's STOP-DWI program is the nation's first self-sustaining impaired driving program. The program is funded from fines paid by convicted impaired drivers.

With just a few days left until Christmas, and a Buffalo Bills home game, you may be having a party or two and celebrating. But have a plan to get home if you plan on having a few drinks.

According to reports, drivers can expect to see increased patrols through January 1st as police look to reduce the number of alcohol and drug-related traffic accidents. During the 2020 holiday season campaign, more than 70-thousand tickets were issued for vehicle and traffic law violations like speeding and impaired driving.

With the amount of ride-share companies available, there are plenty of safe options to get you home after you have been drinking.

Planning a road trip? If you are on your way to New York City and want a delicious pit stop, check out the best poutine we have ever had! Just three hours from BUffalo is a place called P.J.'s 1910 Pub and the poutine that they have is enormous!
