The New York State Police announced that it issued 4,686 tickets during the Super Bowl STOP-DWI traffic enforcement initiative last weekend.

The campaign began at 2 p.m. on Saturday and continued until midnight on Sunday. During the 34-hour campaign, the New York State Police increased patrols and conducted sobriety checkpoints to deter, identify and arrest impaired drivers.

State Troopers arrested 92 people for DWI and investigated 157 accidents, which resulted in 29 people injured but no fatalities.

As part of the enforcement, Troopers also targeted speeding and aggressive drivers across the State. Below is a sampling of the total tickets that were issued.

  • Speeding:                     1,772
  • Distracted Driving:         101
  • Seatbelt violations:         141
  • Move Over Law:              63

During last year’s Super Bowl enforcement, which ran for 12 hours on Super Bowl Sunday, the State Police issued 1,305 tickets and arrested nine people for DWI.
