The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles, the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee, and state, county, and local law enforcement announced the start of a two-week long, statewide “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” enforcement and education campaign. Beginning today through September 4th, state, county and local law enforcement officers will target drunken and drug-impaired driving offenses to encourage motorists to act responsibly

Officials urged New Yorkers to download the free “Have a Plan” app that allows people to locate and call a taxi or newly-available ride share service, program a designated-driver list, and educate themselves on Blood Alcohol Content levels. The app is free and available for Apple, Android, and Windows smart phones.
