Saratoga County to Participate in Statewide STOP-DWI This Weekend

Saratoga County to Participate in Statewide STOP-DWI This Weekend

Saratoga County police agencies will participate in a special enforcement effort to crackdown on impaired driving this weekend.

The effort is part of a statewide STOP-DWI Crackdown effort, which starts Friday, Feb. 2 and will end on Sunday, Feb. 5.

“Super Bowl Weekend is historically a deadly period for impaired driving,” according to a statement issued by Stop-DWI NY.  State Police, County Sheriffs and municipal law enforcement agencies will collaborate across the state and be out in force in a coordinated effort to reduce the number of alcohol related injuries and deaths.

The New York State Governors Traffic Safety Committee and the NYS STOP-DWI Foundation have released a Have A Plan mobile app, which provides a timely and convenient resource that enables persons to locate and call a taxi service, program a designated-driver list, as well as education on Blood Alcohol Content levels, information on DWI laws and penalties, and the ability to report a suspected impaired driver. It is available for Apple, Droid, and Windows smart phones. Download the mobile app “Have a Plan” at:  www.stopdwi.org/mobileapp

The Statewide STOP-DWI Crackdown Campaign also targets St. Patrick’s Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day Weekend, Halloween and the national Holiday Season in December. Highly visible, highly publicized efforts like the STOP-DWI Crackdown Campaign aim to further reduce the incidence of drunk and impaired driving, according to the organization.
