The Governor’s Office of Highway Traffic Safety has reported that 309 motorists were charged with driving under the influence in Arizona over the Fourth of July weekend. 106 of those arrests were made on the Fourth itself. The statistics reflect 50 fewer DUI arrests than last year.
More than 300 officers and deputies joined a statewide task force targeting drunk driving. Of the total AZ DUI arrests, 99 were for extreme DUI, which is usually charged when the driver has a blood-alcohol content in excess of .15%. Law enforcement agencies made a total of 3,471 traffic stops during the extended holiday weekend.
