Graduated License Pocket GuideThe Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) law is designed to provide time for young people to gain critical experience in various traffic scenarios in a safe and somewhat controlled manner. Each provision of the GDL is scientifically based to reduce injury and death among young drivers and their passengers. While discretion is the hallmark of policing, issuing a warning to a young driver, instead of a traffic infraction, circumvents the GDL safeguards and reduces the intent and safety benefit of this statute. This GDL pocket guide is an easy reference of restricted activities and violations for DJ and MJ permits and licenses. Please keep it handy and use it while on patrol to enforce the GDL law.


NY Law Enforcement ChallengeThe New York Law Enforcement Challenge Awards Ceremony was held on October 21, 2014 at the Highway Safety Annual Fall Symposium in Lake Placid.  The Law Enforcement Challenge is an innovative awards program sponsored by the International Association of Chiefs of Police and Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee that annually recognizes outstanding performance and contributions in traffic safety. The program provides law enforcement agencies with an opportunity to make a difference in the communities they serve and allows agencies to learn from one another and establish future goals in traffic safety enforcement and education. The friendly competition between agencies of similar size and type focuses on national traffic safety priorities that include occupant restraint, impaired driving, speeding, and other specific state/or local traffic safety issues.
