A 26-year-old woman was issued 8 traffic tickets after a stop in the town of Owego on May 24, 2019.  Haylery L. Rodriguez of Johnson City, NY was issued a ticket for Unlicensed Operator and 7 improper restraint (no seatbelt) tickets. 

New York State Police in Owego were dispatched to a 911 complaint of several children inside a vehicle that were not restrained in car seats.   The caller told 911 operators that the vehicle was leaving the Tioga Downs parking lot and driving away. 

A trooper spotted the vehicle on State Route 17 and initiated a traffic stop.  The trooper discovered twelve people in the vehicle.  The vehicle, a 2004 Acura MDX could only safely seat seven people.  The trooper also observed that there were 7 children in the vehicle ranging from ages 3 to 11 that were not in child seats, booster seats or even belted in the vehicle.   The driver, Haylery L. Rodriguez was also only driving with only a learner’s permit and did not have a licensed driver in the vehicle. 

The trooper stayed with the vehicle for over two and a half hours to ensure everyone in the vehicle was picked up by a licensed driver with the proper safety equipment.
