LIers looking to drink should think twice before driving
Long Islanders looking to drink and party this New Years weekend should think twice before getting behind the wheel.
Both Nassau and Suffolk counties are stepping up police patrols and setting up DWI checkpoints. In Suffolk, more than 40 extra police officers will be out in the streets. In Nassau, cops will be stopping cars at checkpoints to examine every driver.
Suffolk police officials say the goal of the extra patrols is to scare people from driving after drinking. Police say anyone caught drinking and driving will be punished, including car seizures.
