Monroe County purchased a portable simulator with our counties portion of the $1.6 Million appropriation by NYS for impaired driving programs. The simulator has been used in two high schools within Monroe County. Monroe County coordinated 3 Traffic Safety Fairs at local high schools in Greece and Pittsford with 6 different interactive stations for the students to experience the challenges of driving impaired or distracted. Approximately 600 students were able to experience multiple interactive stations. The simulator was available at two of the three schools. The interactive events were; driving course (fatal vision/distracted), distract a match, battle of the belts, roll over (NYS Police), fatal vision googles, and simulator. The feedback was great from the students.

It was an awesome evening for STOP-DWI Night at the Red Wings on July 4th. Monroe County's very own Bary Siegel (VIP-injured speaker) threw out the first pitch. Barry volunteered to help hand out the lanyards and support the mission of STOP-DWI. He has been serving our community on our VIP since the first one held, January 6, 1992. Monroe County STOP-DWI is grateful to all our volunteers.
We hosted our fifth annual high School DVD Contest Winner Ceremony, June 7. I will attach a photo from the ceremony. FYI, our second place winner was a Russian exchange student. There were over 20 entries and five high schools who participated all three winners were from one high school, Penfield. The first place winner will air on abc, cbs, NBC or fox during the Thanksgiving holiday.
The people featured in the photo, Our County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo, Sheriff Patrick O'Flynn, the three students and teacher from Penfield High School.
Monroe County STOP-DWI Program coordinated our first annual Impaired Driving Victim/Survivor Retreat. Although this was a serious issue to discuss, the benefits of talking about the events in our lives and developing our resiliency skills met the needs of all attendee's. It was an awesome experience. The feedback from attendee's was positive and uplifting. Below is a photo of one of the exercises that we participated in during the day.
