Saratoga County To Participate In  STOP-DWI ST. PATRICK’S DAY  “High Visibility Engagement Campaign”

BALLSTON SPA - Saratoga County police agencies and STOP-DWI coordinators will participate in special efforts to bring awareness to the dangers of impaired driving.

The statewide STOP-DWI High Visibility Engagement Campaign (HVEC) efforts start on March 16, and will continue through March 19. 

St. Patrick’s Day Weekend is a notoriously deadly period for impaired driving due to the number of celebrations and drivers on the road. The Sheriff’s Office, municipal law enforcement agencies and STOP-DWI programs across the state will be participating in special engagement efforts to reduce the number of alcohol related injuries and deaths. 

The STOP-DWI St. Patrick’s Day HVEC is one of many statewide initiatives promoted by STOP-DWI NYand the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee. Highly visible, highly publicized efforts like the STOP-DWI HVEC aim to further reduce the incidence of drunk and impaired driving.
