Expect sobriety checkpoints and more troopers on the road in the Hudson Valley this holiday season.

According to the Daily Freeman, the New York State police will be stepping up there efforts to find and arrest impaired drivers this holiday travel season.

It's all part of the national “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign, which will run through January 1st, 2017.

Authorities announced that they will be patrolling the Hudson Valley in both marked patrol cars and unmarked vehicles, not only looking for impaired drivers, but also looking for distracted drivers, vehicle occupants who aren’t wearing seat belts, drivers using hand held devices and drivers who are not following the state’s “Move Over Law."

State police told the Freeman that last year during the same campaign, they issued 32,000 tickets. 11,000 were for speeding, 810 for distracted driving and 348 were for the Move Over Law.

Police gave these tips out for people planning on traveling this holiday season:

Plan a safe way home before the celebrating begins.

Before drinking, designate a sober driver.

If you’re impaired, use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation.

Use your community’s sober ride program, like safe rider.

If you see a drunken driver on the road, contact your local law enforcement.

If you know someone who is about to drive or ride while impaired, take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to their destination safely.
