State police in Western New York will be cracking down on drunken and distracted driving over the Super Bowl weekend, according to Major Michael Cerreto.

“Everyone knows that drinking and driving can be a lethal combination and so can texting and driving,” Cerreto said. “We are asking motorists to not take chances, if you are going to drink, don’t drive, have a designated driver or arrange other transportation to and from your event,” he said. “Don’t use your phone while driving because that text or that call can wait until you get to your location or safely pull over and stop,” he added.
