From August 15 to September 1, the Avoid the 14 DUI Task Force was out in full force, targeting one of the deadliest killers on the road: drunk driving. The enforcement was part of the national “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign, to save lives and make our roads safer. DUI enforcement resulted in far too many drunk driving arrests and citations countywide over the past 18 days.
From 12:01 AM Friday August 15th, through Midnight Monday September 1, 2014 officers representing 12 county law enforcement agencies have arrested 116 individuals for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In 2013, 115 DUI arrests occurred during the same time period. This year there were no DUI related fatalities on our County’s roadways as compared to three last year.
