“High Visibility Engagement Campaign”

STOP-DWI Impaired Driving High Visibility Engagement Campaign runs October 27 – November 1, 2023

From the Steuben County Sheriff’s Office,

Steuben County Sheriff Jim Allard announced today that Steuben County police agencies and STOP-DWI Coordinators will participate in special efforts to bring awareness to the dangers of impaired driving.

Halloween is meant to be scary, but not when it comes to driving. When it comes to drunk driving Halloween can turn the roads into a horror fest. While we spend time trick or treating and hosting parties with our loved ones, law enforcement officers and STOP-DWI programs across New York State will participate in special efforts to stop impaired driving, prevent injuries and save lives. The statewide STOP-DWI High Visibility Engagement Campaign will start on October 27 and will end on November 1, 2023.

“Have a plan, get a ride and keep our children safe this Halloween” stated Sheriff Allard

The STOP-DWI Halloween High Visibility Engagement Campaign is one of many statewide initiatives promoted by STOP-DWI NY and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee. The Statewide STOP-DWI High Visibility Engagement Campaign also targets Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day/End of Summer, Thanksgiving, Holiday Season, Super Bowl weekend and St. Patrick’s Day.

Highly visible, highly publicized efforts like the STOP-DWI High Visibility Engagement Campaign aim to further reduce the incidence of drunk and impaired driving.
