CHP Nets 208 DUI Arrests Over New Year's Weekend, Fatal Crashes Down

From 6 p.m. last Thursday to 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, the CHP reported one fatal collision in the Bay Area and 208 DUI arrests.

The California Highway Patrol is reporting it made the same number of DUI arrests in the Bay Area over the holiday compared to the same period last year while fatal collisions were down.

From 6 p.m. last Thursday to 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, the CHP reported one fatal collision in the Bay Area and 208 DUI arrests.

Last year, the CHP saw three fatal crashes and 208 DUI arrests during the same period, according to CHP officials.

Statewide, 1,273 drivers were arrested on suspicion of DUI over the past four days, compared to 1,270 arrests statewide during the same enforcement period last year.

Out of the 16 people killed in crashes on CHP-patrolled roadways over the holiday weekend, four were not wearing seatbelts, officials said.

The CHP is reminding motorists to use a designated driver rather than driving under the influence and to buckle up.
