Troopers: Increased patrols, DWI checkpoints planned for Super Bowl weekend

State Police are promising to crack down on drunken driving on Super Bowl weekend.

Increased patrols, sobriety checkpoints and underage drinking enforcement will be used to keep the roads safer, according to State Police Superintendent Joseph A. D’Amico.

“Make the winning decision on Super Bowl weekend and don’t get behind the wheel if you’ve been drinking,” D’Amico said in a written statement. “Driving while impaired can result in tragic consequences for you, your passengers and others on the road. State Police will be visible this weekend looking for drunk drivers, and if you make the wrong choice, odds are that you will be arrested.”

The STOP-DWI campaign will be promoted on various message boards on highways across the state.
