The Sheriff continued, "While we spend time enjoying the holiday 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 or buzzed driving, prevent injuries and save lives."

STOP-DWI NY and the Governor's Traffic Safety Committee also promote high visibility campaigns around several holidays and special dates with the aim of reducing the incidence of drunk and impaired driving.
