More than 17,000 tickets were issued by New York State Police during this year’s St. Patrick’s Day enforcement initiative. The campaign ran for a total of 143 hours, starting on March 12 and continuing until March 17.

During the campaign, NYSP utilized sobriety checkpoints, additional DWI patrols, and underage drinking and sales to minors details. State Police also ticketed distracted drivers who use handheld electronic devices.

State Troopers arrested 257 people for DWI and investigated 947 accidents, which resulted in 243 people being injured and four 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                     6,422
  • Distracted Driving         627
  • Seatbelt violations         503
  • Move Over Law            159

During last year’s St. Patrick’s Day enforcement period, which ran for a total of 120 hours, the State Police issued 14,113 tickets and arrested 264 people for DWI.
