JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) – The Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Department has released the statistics of their STOP-DWI campaign over the Memorial Day weekend.

The statewide program resulted in a total of 63 traffic stops, 42 vehicle and traffic tickets, and two DWI arrests.

The campaign began Friday May 26 and ran until May 30. 

The event was funded by the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee through grant monies.

In a statement Chautauqua County Sheriff Jim Quattrone said: ““Removing intoxicated drivers from Chautauqua County roadways is one of our top priorities. If you choose to drink, don’t drive. Impaired drivers not only put themselves in danger, they threaten everyone who shares the road with them.”
