State and local law enforcement agencies will be stepping up patrols this weekend and targeting impaired driving during the Super Bowl weekend.
The Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office, the Lakewood-Busti Police Department and the Town of Ellicott Police Department are running a joint High Visibility Engagement Campaign today through Monday.
This safety initiative is designed to reduce alcohol and drug-related traffic crashes. It is sponsored by STOP-DWI with funding from the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee.
Governor Kathy Hochul said in a statement, “Be sure to kick off the weekend by planning ahead for a safe ride home and avoid the costly and possibly deadly consequences of drinking and driving.”
Police ask folks who witness a vehicle operating in an erratic manner to call 911 and the pass the information onto the Dispatcher.
