MAYVILLE – A total of 61 vehicle stops, arrests and summonses were conducted by law enforcement throughout Chautauqua County during a state-wide crackdown during the Labor Day holiday, according to the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office.

“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 crackdown began Wednesday, August 14, and continued through Monday, September 2. The event is funded by a 2018-2019 grant from the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee, and is part of a national crackdown effort.
