Police step up patrols to nab DWI drivers during holiday

? Officials say patrols are being stepped up on the roads to catch drunken drivers this holiday.

Last night, a driver was pulled over for a sobriety test at exit 55 on the Long Island Expressway.

There were checkpoints all over Long Island last night for what police consider the most dangerous night of the year.

Cops tell News 12 Long Island that they will continue the stepped-up patrols all weekend to keep everyone safe on the roads. Nassau, Suffolk police step up holiday DWI patrols
