CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. -- For years now, the Ontario County Stop DWI Committee has remembered victims of drunk driving crashes with memorials. Until this year that meant a simple stick, with a ribbon and a name.

Police, prosecutors and state and local traffic safety experts will be on hand, along with a mini-obstacle course and several driving simulators: Drop It and Drive (texting and other driver inattention), The Convincer (accidents and seat belt use) and Fatal Vision goggles (alcohol impairment).
