Operation Precaution targets DWI awareness

EAST GREENBUSH, N.Y. – Rensselaer County officials joined
together Saturday to bring awareness to the tragedies that can occur when
someone drives drunk.

County Executive Kathleen Jimino, members of the Castleton Ambulance
Squad, local law enforcement members and volunteers handed out Stop DWI
Awareness materials as part of Operation Precaution on Route 9J and Hayes Road.

Local families who have suffered the loss of a loved one due
to an alcohol related crash were also in attendance.

The event was led by William Dikant who lost his wife and
two children in an accident involving a drunk driver a few years ago a quarter
of a mile away from where the event took place.
