It is necessary that you are aware of what program is offered and accepted in the county in which you were sentenced.  Pursuant to NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law Sec. 1197 a "Victims Impact Program" means a program operated by a county, a city with a population of one million or more, by a not-for-profit organization authorized by any such county or city.  A description of any such program shall be filed with the commissioner (of motor vehicles) and with the (STOP-DWI) coordinator of the special traffic options program for driving while intoxicated (STOP-DWI) in each county.
