St. Patty’s Weekend is full of green beads, green beer, green everything! But what do you do if at the end of your night you are seeing those red and blue flashing lights?
This year in Arizona, there was a statewide increase in DUI enforcement that lead to a ratio of 1 out of every 17 traffic stops resulting in a DUI arrest, over St. Patrick’s Day weekend. According to reports released by the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, law enforcement arrested 233 people, up from 212 during St. Patty’s Day weekend last year!
As most know, the legal blood alcohol level in Arizona is .08. Among the 233 arrests, 205 were misdemeanors, and 28 were aggravated DUI’s. According to the reports, there were also 10 underage DUI’s recorded over the weekend.
