The Oswego County STOP-DWI Program actively provides public information and education booths at public health fairs, corporate safety fairs, the Oswego County Fair, and other community events throughout the county. Our activities include use of Fatal Vision impairment goggles with activity mats and pedal karts on serpentine cone courses. Local S.A.D.D. Chapters, C.O.C.O.A.A., Farnham, Oswego County Traffic Safety Board, and other traffic safety partners assist to provide sufficient manpower for these activities. Program staff members and Victim Impact Panelists also travel to local high schools for classroom presentations to driver education and health classes.

Since the spring of 2006, STOP-DWI and a coalition of area public safety agencies have presented “MOCK DWI” crash scenarios at local high schools. This presentation as developed not only contains the “Crash” but includes rescue, police investigation, death notification, defendant arraignment and lastly the funeral itself.  School districts generally present the Mock Crashes biennially to students in their junior and senior years just before the prom.

The Oswego County STOP-DWI Program has expanded our presence on social media with accounts on Facebook – Oswego County STOP DWI Program, Instagram – Oswegostopdwi, and Twitter – @OswegoStopDwi.

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.
