Press Release, Orleans County Sheriff Chris Bourke

ALBION – In an effort to keep our roadways safer during Super Bowl weekend, Orleans County Sheriff Chris Bourke announced that local law enforcement agencies will actively participate in the STOP-DWI Super Bowl High Visibility Enforcement Campaign from Feb. 11-14.

As the anticipation of attending gatherings to celebrate the big game, local law enforcement will be out to bring awareness to the dangers of impaired driving and to have a Sober Plan while traveling to prevent injuries and save lives, said Bourke, who is the county’s STOP-DWI coordinator.

Although STOP-DWI efforts across New York have led to significant reductions in the numbers of alcohol related fatalities, there are still too many.

You can help save lives – don’t drive and drive – have a sober plan!

  • Plan a safe way to get home.
  • Call for a ride from a sober friend, family member, taxi 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.
