Sheriffs Telling Our Parents & Promoting Educated Drivers
On Your Mark
Parents voluntarily register any motor vehicle that will be operated by a driver under the age of 21 with the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Office.
An identification decal is issued and affixed to the windshield of each registered vehicle.
If for any reason the registered vehicle, when operated by a driver under the age of 21, is stopped by a law enforcement officer in Chautauqua County, the officer will complete a notification card providing the following information:
Time/Location of stop
Number of passengers
Reason for the stop
Whether any traffic tickets were issued
Notifications will be emailed directly to parents to make them aware of any potential problems and enable them to enforce parental rules that often coexist with teenage driving privileges.
"Your teenager may borrow the keys to the family car, but as parents you hold the key to their future."
