DWI Crackdown in Nassau County

Extra police are on the road all weekend.

The Nassau County Police Department will have extra cops on the road all weekend as part of a drunk-driving crackdown.

The county executive's office issued a statement that said the extra police force would be paid for by money collected through previous DWI fines.

According to County Executive Ed Mangano's office, 71 DWI arrests were made last year in Nassau County over Labor Day weekend. 

Here are some tips for staying safe:

·         If you plan to drink, choose a designated driver before going out

·         Take mass transit, a cab, or ask a sober friend to drive you home

·         Spend the night where the activity is being held

·         Always buckle up – it is your best defense against a drunk driver

So then Nassau taxpayer, according to your logic, they have the right to pull you over and do a complete search of your car just because. Why do you insist on living in a police state with a big brother govt.

Lets start by firing our DA (Kathleen Rice) ... She claims to be tough with DWI ... but only if you kill someone

If you meant checkpoints then you should have said checkpoints...but ok, checkpoints should be unconstitutional, but they aren't so...

what Nassau Taxpayer is saying about "Operating a motor vehicle on a public road is a privilege, not a right" he is correct. a licence can be taken away from people who broke the law. if you drink then drive you are causing a hazard for everyone and do not deserve a licence period
