Police Updates

The Old Westbury Police Department will be participating in several upcoming enforcement initiatives led by The New State Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee.

No Empty Chair Campaign

The “No Empty Chair” teen driving safety education and enforcement campaign raises awareness of highway dangers in the hope there will be no empty chairs during prom and graduation season.

The enforcement component of the campaign target specific infractions statewide during the week, as well as other vehicle and traffic law violations.

The target dates for 2022 are as follows:

Monday, April 25, 2022 – Speeding in School Zones

Tuesday, April 26, 2022 – Seat Belt and Child Restraints

Wednesday, April 27, 2022 – Cell Phone Use and Texting

Thursday, April 28, 2022 – Operation Safe Stop

Friday, April 29, 2022 - Underage Drinking and Impaired Driving

Click it or Ticket Campaign (Buckle Up New York)

No matter what type of vehicle you drive, one of the safest choices drivers and passengers can make is to buckle up. As you head out around the Memorial Day holiday, you'll likely see more law enforcement on the roads as part of Click It or Ticket

This campaign reminds drivers and their passengers of the importance of buckling and the legal consequences – including fines – for not wearing a seat belt. Always place the shoulder belt across the middle of your chest and away from your neck, and place the lap belt across your hips, not your stomach. You should never put the shoulder belt behind your back or under your arm. And remember: always buckle up.

STOPDWI - Statewide High Visibility Engagement Campaigns

While STOP-DWI efforts across New York have led to significant reductions in the numbers of alcohol and drug related fatalities, still too many lives are being lost because of crashes caused by drunk or impaired drivers.
