It seems as though with every holiday, alcohol consumption amongst the general public increases tremendously. As a result, the number of drunk drivers increases as well. Law enforcement is well aware that many people choose to go out and drink while celebrating Halloween and therefore, has decided to conduct a crackdown on those who choose to drink and drive. In addition to cracking down on drunk drivers, law enforcement will also be stopping an increased number of drivers for texting behind the wheel, speeding, and not wearing a seatbelt. This safety campaign began on October 27 and will end after Halloween on November 1.
Law enforcement aims to keep drivers and everyone else on the road safe. When it comes to Halloween, many children will flock the streets of New York to trick or treat. No matter how safe a parent can make sure their child is, few things can shield them from the wrath of a drunk driver. Law enforcement aims to keep the public safe from those who choose to break the law. Anyone who is pulled over for driving while intoxicated will face serious repercussions. The penalties will be much higher if the individual has had another DWI on their record within the last 10 years.
