VIDEO AND PHOTOS: End-of-Summer "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over"
Crackdown on Impaired Driving Kicks

Annual enforcement period aimed at reducing deaths and injuries caused by drunk and impaired driving statewide

Today, the Governor's Traffic Safety Committee (GTSC) and the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) hosted a press conference in Buffalo to kick off this year's end-of-summer statewide Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over law enforcement crackdown (August 21 to September 7) on impaired driving. New York joins each state across the country for the 20-day traffic safety education and enforcement campaign, which is aimed at significantly reducing deaths and injuries caused by motorists driving drunk or impaired by drugs. While the press conference was held in Buffalo, the enforcement effort is statewide.
