Feroleto Law, Buffalo NY

Drunk driving a continuing problem

As an attorney in Western New York and the Buffalo region I am concerned when I continue to see drunk driving arrest made on almost a daily basis. Recent Buffalo News articles have documented several arrest, sometimes two or three per day in recent weeks. People who are arrested come from all age groups and walks of life. Today’s Buffalo News describes four arrest made over the weekend by Erie County and State Police.

Recent tragedies in the news underscore the importance of keeping the roadway safe for other drivers. A cab ride from downtown to North Buffalo is less than $20. A small price to pay compared to the potential for harm that is caused by a drunk driver.

Please remember to use good judgment while having fun with friends and family. Keep in mind the lives and families of others, and how you can protect them with one common sense decision.
