Checkpoints and patrols run November 23 – November 27, 2016
(Binghamton, NY) The Broome County STOP-DWI Program today announced that law enforcement agencies across Broome County will deploy special DWI enforcement patrols to help ensure that our roadways will be safe during the Thanksgiving holiday.
“The night before Thanksgiving has become one of the biggest party nights of the year, on par with St. Patrick’s Day and New Year’s Eve. While we encourage people to enjoy their pre-Thanksgiving activities responsibly, it’s important that they use a sober driver to get to and from their destination if they plan on consuming alcohol,” said Broome County Executive Debbie Preston.
Don’t just make Thanksgiving party plans—make a plan to stay alive.
The STOP-DWI crackdowns are comprised of several periods organized by the New York State STOP-DWI Foundation. These efforts are supported with funding from both the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
