Memorial Day Crackdown

Date: 
May 26 2017 (All day) to May 30 2017 (All day)
Location: 
Statewide

Several years ago the New York State STOP-DWI Association, Inc. launched the “STOP-DWI Crackdown Weekends.” The theory behind this initiative is that by better coordinating and promoting county efforts we can achieve greater visibility of DWI enforcement activities in New York State. Research findings demonstrate that highly visible, publicized efforts like the STOP-DWI crackdowns can further reduce the incidence of DWI.

The “STOP-DWI Crackdown Weekends” Campaign linked together what many counties already do at key times of the year, and promote it under a statewide umbrella. This campaign targets the popular holidays of Halloween, Thanksgiving, the Holiday time period, Super Bowl,  St. Patrick’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day.

The STOP-DWI Crackdown Weekends are a locally driven program – as STOP-DWI Coordinators work with their municipal, county sheriff and state police agencies to coordinate enforcement activities.
