SAN DIEGO California DUI
California DUI Drunk Driving arrests during the New Year's holiday period in San Diego County showed only a small increase over last year and deaths due to drunken-driving decreased by more than half over last year despite a longer holiday weekend, the state Highway Patrol reported Friday.
Countywide, the Highway Patrol made 122 arrests for California DUI drunken-driving between last Friday night and Tuesday night, up only slightly over the 112 made during last year's New Year's period, which was a day shorter due to New Year's Day falling on a Monday. This year, it fell on Tuesday.
Two people died on county roads in drunken-driving accidents during the period this year, down from five during last year's shorter period.
Statewide, officers made 1,596 California DUI drunken-driving arrests during this year's New Year's period, up slightly from 1,481 California DUI arrests last year, and recorded 26 deaths, down from 38 last year.
