Holiday DUI Arrests Up from Last Year
The number of DUI arrests in Los Angeles County were up on last year over a period of eleven days leading up to Christmas. According to Law Enforcement agencies throughout the County, 1,366 people were arrested for DUI in an eleven day span that ended at midnight on December 23rd.
For an equivalent time frame last year, 1,298 DUI arrests were made in Los Angeles County.
It is not clear whether more people are drinking and driving or whether the increase in the number of arrests is as a result of an increased effort by law enforcement.
