OSWEGO, NY – The Oswego County STOP-DWI Program announced that law enforcement agencies across Oswego County will participate in the STOP-DWI Enforcement Crackdown to help ensure that our roadways will be safe during the Halloween holiday.
The STOP-DWI Enforcement Crackdown is comprised of several crackdown periods promoted by the New York State STOP-DWI Association. These efforts are supported with funding from both the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee and the National Highway Traffic Safety Institute.
“Children will be out along our streets and highways Trick or Treating on Halloween night,” says Oswego County STOP-DWI Coordinator Robert Lighthall. “Adults will be celebrating this weekend and we want to keep our highways as safe as possible for everyone. We don’t want a fun holiday to turn into a tragedy.”
“We encourage people to have a plan before they start Halloween activities. Have a plan to and from their destination using a designated driver, taxi, or by walking if they plan on consuming alcohol,” Lighthall added.
