Police cracking down on drug-impaired driving for 4/20
Thursday was April 20 and police say they upped their patrols to keep an eye out for anyone who may be driving high.
State and local police say they stepped up patrols and targeted drug-impaired drivers.
State police reminded drivers that even though adult recreational use of marijuana is legal, it is illegal to drive while impaired.
Impaired driving charges could cost thousands of dollars in fines and result in jail time.
In a statement to News 12, Nassau police say "Nassau County police officers on patrol and in other details are highly trained to recognize the signs of both driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol and/or marijuana. The NCPD will intensify their patrols and continue their zero tolerance approach for driving under the influence to keep our roads and communities safe.”
