We received this press release today from the state police. It seems they're trying to give folks a fair warning. Here it is:
The New York State Police is warning tailgaters to beware! In an effort to deter drunk driving the New York State Police will have extra patrols following the Buffalo Bill’s game this Sunday, specifically looking for motorists driving under the influence of alcohol. Troopers will be on patrol throughout Erie County in an effort to deter drunk drivers and keep the roadways safe. Anyone traveling in the area should expect to see extra patrol vehicles and possibly DWI checkpoints.
“We want everyone who attends that game to have an enjoyable time, but most importantly to drive responsibly. By increasing DWI enforcement we hope to deter motorists from drinking and driving and avoid needless accidents or deaths,” stated Captain Steve Nigrelli, Zone II Commander. If you plan on drinking at the game, have a designated driver or make arrangements ahead of time to find a safe way home. The State Police is committed to protecting motorists here in Western New York. Anyone who is found to be driving under the influence of alcohol can expect to be arrested.
The State Police is committed to DWI enforcement and will continue to have extra patrols following all of the Buffalo Bill’s home games throughout the football season. Anyone with questions may contact Captain Steve Nigrelli at (716) 864-6390.
You've been warned.
