Chauffeurs to Aid in Identifying DWIs

Posted on October 1, 1995

In September, the Nassau Suffolk limousine Association (NSLA) initialed a program in which its members will work in direct cooperation with law enforcement officials lo aid in the apprehension of drunk drivers in the Long Is­land, NY, area. The NSLA ''DWI Spotter Limo'' program trains limousine drivers on how to identify possible drunk drivers and then to promptly alert authorities via cell phone.

Identification and notification are the NSLA mem­bers' only responsibilities. They will not pull over or follow any vehicle or act as a member of the police force. The program is designed so that law enforce­ment can quickly and efficiently respond to any DWI situation before an accident or death occurs.

Douglas A. Diem, president of the NSLA, says this is a great opportunity to help the community and make the roads safe at all hours. "If one call saves a life, then the program is working," says Diem. With over 160 members, the NSLA is confident the program will prove to be an important factor in reducing the number of drunk driving-related accidents.
