WOODBURY - Suffolk County police announced Thursday a crackdown on drunken driving for the New Year's holiday.

Nassau police are also stepping up patrols.

Officials suggest revelers plan ahead for a safe ride home.

"Have a designated driver," says Timothy Sini, Suffolk's deputy police commissioner. "If that doesn't work, or it falls through, you can always call a family member or friend that hasn't been drinking. If that doesn't work out, call a cab."

Last year, 34 people were arrested for driving drunk or impaired across the Island.
