In 2014, 9,967 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes. This accounted for nearly one-third of all traffic-related deaths in the United States.
Locally, the Erie County Sheriff’s Office is doing their part to stop fatalities.
During the 2016 holiday season, the ECSO issued over 300 tickets and arrested approximately 20 people for driving while intoxicated (DWI).
You can easily prevent yourself from being another one of these statistics.
Before drinking, designate a non-drinking driver. Don’t let anyone who is in your party drive impaired, and if you have been drinking, get a ride home.
While ride sharing is being debated in Buffalo, taxis are still an option.
Please keep our roads and your loved ones safe, don’t drink and drive.
Happy Valentine's Day!
