Members of local, county, and state law enforcement announced plans for increased enforcement and extra patrols as part of the state and national DWI Enforcement Campaign May 26 through May 30, 2023. Dedicated DWI patrols and sobriety checkpoints await impaired drivers throughout the county.
So far this year nearly 700 drivers have been arrested for Impaired Driving in Erie County. Those convicted of DWI can expect to pay an average of $10,000 in fines and other costs and are prohibited from entering Canada for 10 years. Motorists are encouraged to use the many safe, convenient, and low-cost alternatives to driving after drinking.
