[ARCHIVED] Irvington Police will participate in the “No Empty Chair” safe teen driver enforcement initiative

Irvington Police Department will participate in the “No Empty Chair” safe teen driver enforcement initiative from April 18 – 22, 2016.

Each year, thousands of high school students across New York State look forward to attending their prom and graduation ceremony. For parents, siblings, educators and the community, these memorable moments become meaningless when a child dies in a car crash. Regrettably, this scenario happens all too often and law enforcement is tasked with making the difficult “knock on the door”. In an effort to reduce these tragedies, the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee launched the “No Empty Chair” educational campaign in 2014. The theme is to symbolize the missing high school senior on graduation day.

Additional information about the 2016 “No Empty Chair” initiative is available from the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee.
