Police in the state of New York issued over 33,000 tickets during a two-week holiday crackdown in a bid to penalize drunken and impaired motorists.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo informed the public on Thursday, January 5 that the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” program, which was in full effect between December 16, 2016 and January 1, 2017, was a successful deterrent of traffic-related accidents due to impaired driving. New York police troopers took into custody 571 individuals for driving while intoxicated charges and looked into around 644 personal injury accident cases.
To put it into context, police officers were able to issue 11,000 tickets for speeding, over 1,000 tickets for distracted driving, and 421 tickets for violations against the “move over” law regarding emergency vehicles.

Earlier this week, emergency dispatch received a phone call from a four-year-old New Jersey girl reporting that her father had passed out while operating a motor vehicle.
The young girl made the call after her father had stopped the car containing both of them and proceeded to pass out. When officers arrived on scene around 9:30 p.m., they discovered the father, Jamil Graham, intoxicated and in possession of a half-empty bottle of vodka. Graham later failed field sobriety tests and was later arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
Thankfully, no one was injured as the result of the careless acts of the father though it is unimaginable how afraid the child must have been after seeing her father pass out. Even though it was a holiday weekend, drinking responsibly is still necessary – especially when there are young children involved.
