Keep Your Vehicle Locked to Avoid Being a Victim

Keep Your Vehicle Locked to Avoid Being a Victim

The West Seneca Police would like to remind people to keep their cars locked when parked unattended, especially overnight.

During the warm weather months, we see an increase in thefts from vehicles. For the most part, these are crimes of opportunity. As perpetrators walk around the streets at night time, they will check car doors to see if they are locked. If your car is unlocked, They will enter, and take any valuables left inside. Items commonly taken are cell phones, GPS units, I pads, money, wallets, etc.

The vast majority of past victims left their vehicles unlocked. It is rare that we find a vehicle that has been damaged to gain entry due to it being locked. These people do not want to make a lot of noise by breaking into a car. Therefore they move on when faced with a locked door.

Don't make yourself an easy target for thieves. Keep your cars locked when they are unattended,

Assemblymember Gabryszak: ‘Texting’ law having major effect on road safety

Assemblymember Gabryszak: ‘Texting’ law having major effect on road safety

Last year, I helped pass a law that created a statewide ban on the use of portable
electronic devices (PEDs) while driving (Ch. 109 of 2011). The aim of the law is to make
roads safer by cutting down on the amount of distracted drivers. It’s good news for our
area that this legislation is working and the roads across New York State are safer now
than they have been in recent years.
Too many people text or play with electronics while driving, which creates
unnecessary dangerous situations. It not only puts drivers at risk, but everyone else at risk
as well. By having this law in place, police officers can keep our roads safer by cracking
down on distracted driving.
Since the tougher regulations took effect on July 12, 2011, law-enforcement officers
issued 7,495 tickets statewide for texting. In 2010, only 3,248 tickets were issued. In Erie
County, from July 12, 2011 to Feb. 7 of this year, 3,749 tickets have been given out to
