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.

 

Get Set

An identification decal is issued and affixed to the windshield of each registered vehicle.

 

S.T.O.P.P.E.D.

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

  • Driver's name

  • 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.
