In an effort to keep the streets safe during the days leading up to Halloween, New York announced a statewide DWI crackdown.

Between October 26-31, all the counties within New York will be setting up sobriety checkpoints a saturation patrol to deter and catch drunk drivers.

Motorists are reminded that driving with a blood-alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 or higher will put them over the limit.

STOP-DWI, or “Special Traffic Options Program for Driving While Intoxicated,” is a comprehensive and financially self-sustaining highway safety program.
