MAYVILLE — A Stop-DWI Holiday High Visibility Engagement Campaign that ran from Dec. 13 to Jan. 1 resulted in 10 vehicle stops in Chautauqua County, the Sheriff’s Office announced.

The annual campaign is funded by a grant from the governor’s Traffic Safety Committee and is part of a national High Visibility Engagement Campaign effort. Locally, agencies that take part in the campaign include the Sheriff’s Office, municipal police departments and the New York State Police.

In addition to the vehicle stops, this year’s enforcement also resulted in a drunken driving arrest.

“Removing intoxicated drivers from Chautauqua County roadways is one of our top priorities,” Sheriff James Quattrone said. “If you choose to drink, don’t drive. Impaired drivers not only put themselves in danger, they threaten everyone who shares the road with them.”
