New York State Police aimed to crack down on impaired driving and underage drinking during the days leading up to and following Halloween. Halloween celebrations present serious safety risks as the number of pedestrians skyrockets with children and families ‘trick or treating’ and at the same time there is generally an increase in impaired driving.
Each year, through our C2Q initiative, we travel to high schools throughout New York State to help educate young drivers about the risks of driving distracted. We tailor our presentations to meet the needs of each school we attend.
