[ARCHIVED] STOP-DWI Super Bowl weekend crackdown planned


The statewide STOP-DWI Crackdown efforts start on February 2nd and will end on February 5th. The Super Bowl is America’s most watched national sporting event and Super Bowl Weekend is historically a deadly period for impaired driving. The Washington County Sheriff's Office along with other law enforcement agencies will collaborate across the state and will be out in force in this coordinated effort to reduce the number of alcohol related injuries and deaths.

Impaired driving is completely preventable.  All it takes is a little planning.  If you’re hosting a Super Bowl party, designate a responsible driver before the game begins. We want fans to remember that it’s a choice.  So root for your favorite team; enjoy your friends and family and remember “DON’T DRIVE, GET A RIDE!  

The STOP-DWI Super Bowl Weekend Crackdown is one of many statewide enforcement initiatives promoted by the New York State STOP-DWI Association with additional funding from the STOP-DWI Foundation courtesy of the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee.  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.
