WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- New York State Police will join local law enforcement agencies across the state in an effort to crack down on impaired driving during Super Bowl weekend in Westchester.

The STOP-DWI campaign will include increased patrols on the roadways and sobriety checkpoints to deter, identify and arrest impaired drivers.

During the 2014 campaign, State Police made nearly 100 impaired driving arrests. The campaign will be promoted on variable message boards on highways across the state, including the New York State Thruway, and runs from noon through midnight on Super Bowl Sunday.

“The injuries and deaths caused by impaired drivers are completely preventable. State Police and our law enforcement partners continue to work to keep drunk drivers off our roads every day," Police Superintendent Joseph A. D’Amico said in a statement. "Those celebrating the big game this weekend should do so safely- plan ahead or drive sober. Together, we can save lives and prevent serious injuries.”

An impaired driving conviction carries a maximum fine of $10,000, up to seven years in prison and license revocation.
