Police will crack down on substance-impaired driving in St. Lawrence County and around the state May 24 to 28, covering the long Memorial Day weekend.

St. Lawrence County Stop-DWI says police agencies throughout the county will participate in conjunction with state agencies.

“Memorial Weekend is historically a deadly period for impaired driving. Memorial Day weekend is the traditional beginning of summer. In addition there will be thousands of parties and BBQs to celebrate graduations, proms, communions, and confirmations now that the better weather has finally arrived. This combination of factors equates to more people on the road in general and more people specifically driving impaired,” said a news release from the SLC STOP-DWI program .

St. Lawrence County STOP-DWI officials say they will be working with state police and Ogdensburg Police Department in their efforts to catch impaired drivers.
