Police forces across the Tri-State have pledged to be out in force addressing drunk and distracted driving during what AAA predicted would be the third heaviest Memorial Day travel period in history.

Thousands will also be enjoying the water this weekend. Boaters like Dock Master Kelly Heizer with Freedom Boat Club are urging their fellow captains to remain sober behind the controls.

“You know, having a sober skipper,” she said. “It’s just like being in a car. You know, you don’t want anything fogging your mind because there’s a lot going on out there.”

Police advised drunk drivers that trying to get around sobriety checkpoints will not be sufficient to avoid getting caught as they increase patrols around the entire area.
