The Fulton Speedway would like to thank the newest marketing partner and one of the event sponsors, 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.
NYS STOP-DWI Mission
· 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)
