ALBANY, N.Y. (AP & WXXI News) — Police in New York state say they will be beefing up road patrols this holiday weekend.
State troopers say drivers this Fourth of July weekend can expect to see sobriety checkpoints and DWI patrols. Troopers say they also will be targeting the illegal sale of alcohol to minors.
State Police last year arrested more than 180 people for DWI during the holiday weekend and issued more than 10,200 tickets.
Authorities say the average drinking and driving arrest costs up to $10,000.
