Police Lights

Despite having more officers on the roads this past Halloween weekend, holiday DUI arrests are again down from past years according to preliminary results from the Arizona Office of Highway Safety.  Arrests in 2015 reached 320, down for 2016 by nearly 100 arrests, to 209.

 

While DUI arrests are down, aggressive driving citations rose slightly over last year and criminal speeding citations rose as well.
