The holidays aren't over yet, but dozens have been arrested in and around Philadelphia in DUI crackdowns.
While state police in and around Philadelphia, Montgomery and Delaware counties were handling fewer car crashes this year, that didn't mean there were fewer drunken drivers on the road than in previous years. To the contrary, actually, there were more drunken drivers on the road, according to The Philadelphia Daily News.
From Dec. 21 to Christmas Day, there were a reported 109 crashes in those three counties, with eight of them being related to alcohol. But 32 others were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and 794 were cited for overall traffic infractions, reports The Daily News.
Last year, there were 16 DUI arrests during the same period.
