Program runs through Sept. 3
The sheriff’s departments in Putnam and Dutchess counties, along with the New York State Police, will increase patrols and set up sobriety checkpoints as part of a statewide initiative to arrest impaired drivers that continues through Sept. 3.
The increased enforcement is funded by the state’s Special Traffic Options Program for Driving While Intoxicated (STOP-DWI) Association, the STOP-DWI Foundation and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee.
