DUI Arrests Tripled?

Posted by Richard Lawson | Apr 29, 2012 | 0 Comments

A Myrtle Beach news story has been gaining national press after officers reported that, as of April 2012, 159 DUI arrests had been made since the beginning of the year. As of the same time in 2011, the same officers made less than 50 arrests for driving under the influence. Is drunk driving on the rise, or are police making extra efforts to keep drunk drivers off the road?

Though I don't have figures available, it seems as though Atlanta police officers are making their fair share of DUI arrests these days as well. If you have been driving in Atlanta after around 11pm at night, you have likely seen officers making stops and conducting field sobriety tests. If you have been drinking even one beer, it is probably wise to arrange for alternate transportation.
