Albany, N.Y. - State and local law-enforcement agencies will be cracking down on drunk driving during the July 4 holiday week.
They plan to use sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols to deter drunk drivers, as well as drivers under the influence of both illegal and prescription drugs, as part of the Fourth of July STOP-DWI Crackdown July 3-8.
DMV statistics show there were 8,461 alcohol-related crashes in the state in 2011, resulting in 362 deaths and 6,121 injuries.
The majority of those crashes involve drunk drivers who have nearly twice the legal blood-alcohol content on .08.
