The New York State Police and their local partners in law enforcement will step up patrols over the Memorial Day weekend in an effort to stop impaired and reckless motorists.

Motorists can expect to see added police on the roads through Monday night.

The crackdown will also include sobriety checkpoints in certain locations, as well as increased use of unmarked police cars.

Authorities said Memorial Day is one of the busiest travel weekends of the year in New York.

During last year’s holiday weekend, state troopers arrested 237 people for drunk driving and issued 13,318 tickets overall.
