MAYVILLE – Three people were arrested for driving while intoxicated, and 95 other stops, arrests and summonses were made by Chautauqua County police agencies during a New York State STOP-DWI Holiday Enforcement Crackdown between Dec. 13 and Jan. 1, according to statistics released Monday by the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office.
This event is funded by a 2018-2019 grant from the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee, and is part of a national crackdown effort.
“Removing intoxicated drivers from Chautauqua County roadways is one of our top priorities,” said Chautauqua County Sheriff James B. Quattrone. “If you choose to drink, don’t drive. Drunk drivers not only put themselves in danger, they threaten everyone who shares the road with them.”
The Chautauqua County STOP-DWI Program is funded by drinking and driving fines collected from convicted drunk drivers.
