LIVINGSTON COUNTY – Law enforcement across the county will be cracking down on Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) on our highways, streets, and villages.
Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty announced on Tuesday that the Sheriff’s Office, six Village Police Departments, New York State Park Police, and SUNY Geneseo Police Department will be participating in the fifth of eight Traffic Safety Committee STOP-DWI Crackdown Enforcement on eight occasions between October 1, 2014 and September 30, 2015, spearheaded by Governor Cuomo.
This fifth crackdown will take place in Livingston County March 13 through 18, to coincide with St. Patrick’s Day weekend. Deputies and police officers from the Avon, Caledonia, Dansville, Geneseo, Mount Morris, Nunda, New York State Park Police, and SUNY Geneseo Police Departments will be especially on the lookout for violators of NYS Vehicle and Traffic Laws, hoping to reduce the number of crashes, injuries and deaths on Livingston County highways at times of the year when crashes are more likely to occur.
Livingston County along with 43 other counties in New York State will participate in the STOP-DWI Crackdown Enforcement program by utilizing funds awarded the New York State STOP-DWI Foundation. Sheriff Dougherty reminds Livingston County drivers to drive carefully and be observant of vehicle and traffic laws.
