Watch for Halloween drunken drivers

October 30, 2006

Albany -- Even if you're not planning to travel out of town for Halloween, police say you better not drink and drive or your holiday can turn into a nightmare.

Across the state, patrols are cracking down on DUI's as Halloween approaches.

The Governor's Office of Highway Safety representatives say the spooky holiday is one of the year's most dangerous ones due to alcohol-related crashes.

They say more than half of all deadly crashes on Halloween are alcohol related.

As children begin trick or treating, state representatives encourage parents to watch out for cars because you may not know if someone under the influence is driving.
