California Highway Patrol reports increase in DUI arrests over Holiday Weekend

Posted By Thomas V. Wallin || 28-Dec-2009

The holiday weekend brought an increase in California DUI arrests according to the CHP.  Across the state from 6:01 pm Christmas Eve to 6 am Sunday there were 16 fatal traffic accidents.  In Los Angeles County alone, the arrests from driving under the influence nearly doubled.  The CHP and other agencies are reported to be gearing up for this weekend, one of the most notorious drinking holidays of the weekend.

Holiday parties provide a great source of entertainment, however they also come during a time when law enforcement agencies have beefed up patrolling for drunk driving.  Citizens are encouraged to report any signs of impaired driving.  Being arrested for a California DUI can be terrifying.  The best thing that you can do is hire a leading California drunk driving defense attorney to assist you with all aspects of your case.
