Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol hosted the Sheriff’s annual snowmobile safety news conference on Tuesday at the Deerfield Firehouse as the snowmobile season prepares to kick off.

A number of safety tips were discussed, along with areas of concerns that law enforcement will be focusing on.

Maciol says some of the laws that will be strictly enforced will include operating a snowmobile while intoxicated, speeding violations, registration violations, and exhaust modifications.

Maciol also stressed the need to respect the landowners who make nearly all of the groomed trails in the County possible.
