Fall DUI enforcement is the riskiest time to drive

DOT publishes arrest statistics for the entire year, and back in time several years. A brief look at the actual numbers shows the most arrests for impaired driving are right now; in Autumn, after Labor Day, during both the Fall Festival Enforcement, a 46 day time period, and the National Crackdown Labor Day enforcement period. The numbers for 2015 so far show 3,172 arrests for this period, out of a total for the entire year, of 9,074, or 35% of all arrests. The DUI crackdown announcement for Labor Day is attached here.
