25K Tickets Issued Statewide Over St. Patrick’s Day Weekend


Police agencies throughout the state issued 24,699 tickets for various vehicle and traffic law violations, including 935 tickets for impaired driving, during a statewide mobilization targeting impaired drivers before, during and after St. Patrick’s Day. The enforcement period ran from March 15 through March 17.

During the campaign, State and local law enforcement officers utilized sobriety checkpoints and increased patrols to deter, identify, and arrest impaired drivers. The statewide initiative was funded by the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee.

As part of the enforcement, law enforcement officers also targeted speeding and aggressive drivers across the state. Below is a breakdown of the total tickets that were issued.

“As I have said many times in the past, New York will be resolute in removing impaired and reckless drivers from our roadways,” Governor Hochul said. “I want to thank our law enforcement officers for their continued commitment to protecting and keeping New Yorkers safe.”
