Press Release, Orleans County Sheriff’s Office

There is zero tolerance when it comes to drinking and driving. Orleans County Stop DWI Coordinator Sheriff Randall Bower, NY State Police Sergeant Michael Notto, Medina Police Chief Chad Kenward and Albion/Holley Police Chief Roland Nenni announced they are joining forces in a zealous effort to stop drinking and driving during this Thanksgiving Crackdown (November 21-25, 2018).

As Thanksgiving Eve is known as one of the biggest drinking nights of the year, it is vital that law enforcement presence be at its peak on this night. Although STOP-DWI efforts across New York have led to significant reductions in the numbers of alcohol related fatalities, there are still too many lives lost due to DWI crashes.

You can help save lives, by not drinking and driving and having a sober plan for getting home.

• Plan a safe way to get home.

• Call for a ride from a sober friend, family member, taxi, public transportation, or Uber.

The STOP-DWI Crackdowns are promoted by New York State STOP-DWI Association with additional funding from the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee and implemented by the STOP-DWI Foundation.
