Shattered Lives was originally published by the Broome County STOP-DWI Program in 2003 in collaboration with MADD of Broome County, the Binghamton City School District, the Daniel K run/walk and the City of Binghamton Parks Department. Shattered Lives also received generous support from the New York Press Association, David Skyrca Design and Chris Heide, Broome County Department of Information Technology. The publication was adapted and reprinted in 2005, 2007 and again in 2010 as a STOP-DWI New York publication reflecting the impact of impaired driving throughout New York State. The 2010 and 2015 editions were reprinted by the New York State STOP-DWI Foundation, Inc. with funding by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration through a grant from the New York State Governor's Traffic Safety Committee.

The most sincere acknowledgement goes to the courageous people who were willing to share their painful stories with the reader to prevent future tragedies related to impaired driving. Shattered Lives is dedicated to the victims of drunk driving crashes.
In the early days of STOP-DWI in New York State both Delaware RID (Remove Intoxicated Drivers) and the New York State STOP-DWI Coordinators Association created publications used as the model for the current Shattered Lives booklets.

DRE – The New York State Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee is charged with the administration and oversight of the Drug Evaluation and Classification Program under the auspices of the International Association of Chiefs Of Police. A recurring concern we have heard from the law enforcement community is the difficulty in locating a DRE especially if the agency does not have a DRE on staff. To address this issue we have compiled and are making available a statewide listing of all certified Drug Recognition Experts and their employing agency contact information. We hope that this newly published listing of Drug Recognition Experts will provide a concise reference to quickly contact a local DRE to provide assistance in any drug impaired, driving related incident.
The list is presented alphabetically by county and can be found on the GTSC website, SafeNY.ny.gov at this link: http://safeny.ny.gov/DRE Once this page loads click on “NYS DRE Officers” at the bottom of the page to access the listing.
This DRE Web page provides the link to the announcement and application and also lists all of the other upcoming trainings we offer such as the Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement training http://safeny.ny.gov/DRE/dre-clas.htm

Many Anti-Drunk Driving Campaigns have made their way to New York’s educational efforts. As a result of the combination of the advertising, legislative change and Police enforcement we have seen the fatality figure fall over the years. Many commercials have been put to air over the last 30 years. We all have our favorites, with images and words that are burned into our memories. These commercials have created a culture of road safety that consistently results in a lower fatality rates.
