DUI Task Force Nabs Arizonans Over The Holidays

According to the Arizona Governor's Office of Highway Safety, nearly 4,400 people in Arizona were arrested on suspicion of DUI between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve by Arizona police officers participating in a statewide holiday DUI task force.

Officers arrested 4,371 people between Nov. 24 and Jan. 1, including 1,098 people on suspicion of extreme DUI, 450 on suspicion of aggravated DUI, and 934 DUI drug arrests. Of the 81,934 total people stopped, there were 1,964 designated drivers, and 34,974 non-DUI citations were handed out.

The average blood-alcohol content of those arrested was 0.15 percent. The legal limit in Arizona is 0.08 percent.

While the number of Arizonans arrested for DUI has steadily increased over the past several years, so has the number of designated drivers, which is an important tool to utilize in order to avoid DUI arrest in Arizona.

Over the past year, Arizona police officers working on DUI task forces arrested 27,710 people on suspicion of DUI, including 8,080 on suspicion of extreme DUI, 3,275 on suspicion of aggravated DUI and 3,919 drug DUI arrests.

Highway Safety Office Director Alberto Gutier said the goal of the DUI task forces is "to reduce crashes, fatalities and injuries on our streets and highways by enforcing DUI and traffic laws in our state."
