Upcoming Events and Trainings

The NY State STOP-DWI Foundation, Inc., through funding from the NYS Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee is pleased to sponsor regional trainings to benefit local STOP-DWI efforts in New York State. These seminars are free of charge and designed help our partners prevent impaired driving.

"RECOGNIZING IMPAIRED PERSONS", presented by Gary Bulinski, teaches attendees the signs and symptoms of probable alcohol misuse, and the signs and symptoms of probable drug use.  This four-hour course provides attendees with the basic knowledge and skills needed to identify, document, and communicate their observations of persons who appear to be impaired. It will cover the physical, behavioral, speech, and performance indicators associated with probable alcohol misuse and/or drug use. In addition, attendees will learn the most commonly abused drug categories, current trends, and common methods of use.

This training series will feature Gary Bulinski, president of Traffic Safety Research LLC., who has more than twenty-four years of experience in law enforcement and has spent a majority of his time detecting alcohol and drug impaired persons and conducting crash investigations.

"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.  Highly visible, highly publicized efforts like the STOP-DWI High Visibility Engagement Campaigns aim to further reduce the incidence of drunk and impaired driving.  Research shows that high-visibility enforcement can reduce drunk driving fatalities by as much as 20 percent. Sobriety checkpoints and roving patrols play a key part in raising awareness about the problem.
