Erie County to Participate in Statewide STOP-DWI Labor Day Crackdown Enforcement Effort

August 31, 2013 Updated Aug 31, 2013 at 1:23 PM EDT

Impaired Driving Crackdown runs until September 2nd, 2013

The STOP-DWI Labor Day Weekend Crackdown is one of many statewide enforcement initiatives promoted by the New York State STOP-DWI Association. Throughout the remainder of the year the Statewide STOP-DWI Crackdown Campaign will also target Halloween and the national Holiday Season in December.

Erie County STOP-DWI Coordinator John Sullivan:

While STOP-DWI efforts across New York have led to significant reductions in the numbers of alcohol and drug related fatalities, still too many lives are being lost because of crashes caused by drunk or impaired drivers. Highly visible, highly publicized efforts like the STOP-DWI Crackdown Campaign aim to further reduce the incidence of drunk and impaired driving. Have a safe and happy Labor Day Weekend!
