The Port Washington Police District has announced that they are participating in New York’s Holiday Safe & Sober Campaign. This campaign will run from Friday, May 22 through Monday, May 25.
In 2013, 290,000 Americans were injured and 10,076 deaths were caused by drunk driving accidents. In an effort to reduce this number, the Port Washington Police District is engaging in aggressive enforcement of impaired driving offenses. Sustained impaired driving enforcement, together with periodic high visibility crackdowns such as the Safe & Sober Campaign, is the key to making our community safer. The funding for this campaign was provided by the Nassau County “STOP DWI” through a grant from the New York State “STOP DWI Coordinators Foundation by the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee”.
Please don’t drink and drive!
