Putnam County Participates in Statewide STOP-DWI Crackdown Enforcement Effort

–Impaired Driving Crackdown conducted on St. Patrick’s Day–

Putnam County Sheriff Donald B. Smith reports that Putnam County police agencies participated in a special enforcement effort to crackdown on impaired driving last week.

The statewide STOP-DWI Crackdown action started on March 13th and ended on March 18th. Historically, the revelries and festivities marking St. Patrick’s Day have given rise to increased incidents of impaired driving and drinking related crashes, resulting in injuries and deaths on New York roadways. In an effort to deter DWI offenses around St. Patrick’s Day, the New York State Police, County Sheriffs, and local law enforcement agencies across the state were out in force last week, on the lookout for impaired drivers.

Sheriff Smith said that sheriff’s deputies and officers from the Kent Police Department combined to set up sobriety checkpoints at several different locations along Putnam County roads on St. Patrick’s Day evening, and screened dozens of motorists for signs of impairment. “The checkpoints were apparently effective in deterring impaired driving,” said the Sheriff, “because all the motorists screened were determined to be fit to drive.”
