Arizona's holiday DUI arrests increase over 3-year period

GasBuddy Blog -- Whatever it takes to get people to wise up and drive sober is apparently a message that hasn't arrived in Arizona.

More than 4,000 Arizonans statewide were arrested on suspicion of DUI between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve by officers participating in regional saturation enforcements, according to the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.

The Arizona Republic reports that 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, according to GOHS.

If Arizona has such a problem, they should increase their punishment, perhaps that would help?

Arizona's holiday DUI arrests increase over 3-year period? Why people drink and drive is beyond me. When you get caught drunk driving, receive the ticket and go to court, there are many expenses coming to legally drive again, you could spend $10K or more after all is said and done. It is not worth spending that much time and money in court costs, lawyer fees, fines, driving classes and whatever other expenses they will force you to pay in order to drive again.
DON'T DRINK OR DRIVE DISTRACTED!
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, vehicle manufactures Produce and the population ‘Drives’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

That's a lot of drinkers; how about distracted drivers on mobile phones? Traffic studies show drivers on mobile phones are as impaired as a person under the influence!
