99 DWI Charges on Long Island over Memorial Day Weekend
As reported last week, police were on the lookout for drunk drivers during Memorial Day weekend. As a result, 99 DWI arrests were made over the weekend, which is down from 2014 and 2013 when police made 128 arrests and 132 arrests, respectively. 56 DWI arrests occurred in Nassau County while 43 arrests were made in Suffolk County.
Nassau County will be stepping up their enforcement of DWI offenses for the remainder of the summer by utilizing asset forfeiture funds to pay for roughly 5,000 of overtime and money from the state’s “STOP DWI” grant program.
