A trio of law enforcement officers who combined to make 75 DWI arrests last year were among those honored at the Genesee/Orleans Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse's DWI Victim Impact Panel Annual Recognition Dinner Friday night.
The panel, which promotes prevention and education against drunk driving, also honored Darien Town Justice Gary Graber and Korey Kustes of Corfu, a volunteer speaker who was crippled in an accident with a drunk driver in 2005.
Due to the efforts to combat drunk driving in New York State, New York State ties with Utah on the fewest DWI fatalities per 100,000 miles driven. As far as risks posed from drunk driving, New York and Utah are the safest states in the Nation. We are #1 in DWI safety.
Thanks to all who make this possible: law enforcement personnel, DAs, magistrates, probation and parole officers, treatment agencies, prevention agencies, retailers who use save server protocols and parents who don't let their kids and each other drink and drive.
