State Police are adding additional DWI check points on the New York State Thruway during Super Bowl weekend as part of the annual Stop DWI crackdown initiative.

Troopers will be out in full force keeping close watch for drunk drivers.

During last year’s crackdown, 1,794 tickets were issued and 13 people were arrested for DWI.

The initiative begins February 1 and runs until February 4.
