The rate of these crashes climbed more than 50 percent over the three-day Labor Day weekend past year.

The New York State Police are again participating in a national crackdown, "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over", during the Labor Day weekend.

Troopers set up sobriety checkpoints as well as DUI patrols around CT.

State police, local police departments and sheriff's offices, as well as the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, AAA Mid-Atlantic, and the Virginia-based Washington Regional Alcohol Program, are working together on two annual campaigns aimed at lowering risky-driving behaviors: the Checkpoint Strikeforce Campaign and Operation Combined Accident Reduction Effort (C.A.R.E.).

Arsene Wenger's interest in Thomas Lemar is said to long term, with the Gunners boss admiring the winger since his time at Caen.

The Labor Day Weekend is just about here, and the State of NY wants to make sure you stay safe while you're out enjoying the holiday.

Sheriff's deputies and troopers also will have extra patrols and a checkpoint set up over the weekend.

Troopers will join their counterparts from across the country in the global traffic safety initiative, Operation C.A.R.E., which stands for Crash Awareness and Reduction Efforts.

In addition to drunken drivers, troopers will also be watching for distracted drivers, occupants who are not buckled up and drivers who violate the Move Over Law intended for emergency service workers. "We can always do more to make our roads safer for New Yorkers". "Drivers continue to break the law by driving impaired, putting thousands of travelers at risk every day". A total of 44,501 drivers were arrested on drunk and drug-impaired driving charges that year.
