Brewerton Speedway would like to thank marketing partner and event sponsor New York State – Stop DWI.

New York State is recognized nationally as a leader in traffic safety, and in particular for continual progress in reducing alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes and fatalities.

New York’s STOP-DWI program is the Nations’ first and, to date, only self-sustaining impaired driving program. Other States have implemented components of self-sufficiency, but none to the degree of New York State.


·       Reduce the number of persons killed or injured in alcohol and other drug-related traffic crashes

·       To promote DWI prevention as a public priority

·       Coordinate local efforts in Law Enforcement, Prosecution, Probation, Rehabilitation, Public Information, Education, and Administration.


·       STOP-DWI stands for “Special Traffic Options Program for Driving While Impaired”.

·       The STOP-DWI Program was created by the State Legislature in 1981.

·       Empowers counties to coordinate local efforts to reduce alcohol and other drug related traffic crashes.

·       The Program functions as a financially self-sustaining alcohol and highway safety program.

·       STOP-DWI efforts are funded entirely from fines paid by convicted drunken drivers, no tax dollars are used.

STOP-DWI New York has followed the “General Deterrence Model” in developing the legislation and programs that are a statewide success. The General Deterrence Model is best described as a method to get people not to do something. The necessary prongs include:

·       Prevention and Education (don’t drink and drive)

·       Incapacitation (keep drinkers from driving)

·       Reform (treat individuals to prevent future offenses)

·       Deterrence (change behavior through fear or consequences)
