Troopers set up checkpoint in Onondaga County following football parties

Local News
New York State Police set up sobriety checkpoints on Sunday, aiming to get any reckless or impaired drivers off the roads.
 
At one checkpoint in Onondaga County, troopers handed out 32 traffic tickets, 1 seat belt ticket and 3 child seat tickets. 
 
Three people are charged with DWI and two drivers are charged with unlawful possession of marijuana.  
 
“We stop every car that comes through here, ask them a few questions,” said Trooper Jack Keller. “If it doesn’t smell…if they don’t have an alcoholic beverage on their breath and they don’t appear to be slurring and eyes aren’t glossy, then more than likely they are going to continue traveling.”
 
Statewide, during a similar campaign in 2016, troopers arrested more than 90 people for impaired driving and they issued more than 4-thousand tickets.
