Utah Highway Patrol releases New Year's Weekend numbers

In 2016, there were more than 180 DUI arrests in the area, and so far this year, they are at 123 DUI arrests.

CHP reported eight DUI arrests for the El Centro area and four DUI arrests for the area of Winterhaven.

Troopers arrested 284 people for DUI over the three-day holiday period, which is down from the 328 DUI arrests a year ago over the same time period.

The California Highway Patrol conducted a New Year's Holiday Enforcement Detail that brought DUI arrests and one fatality to Imperial County.


The New Year's Maximum Enforcement Period was from Friday, Dec. 29, 2017 at 6:01 p.m. until Monday, Jan. 1, 2018 at 11:59 p.m.

CHP officers braced themselves for motorists driving under the influence, issuing a notice after Christmas that they would be cracking down on suspects over the New Year's weekend.

Additionally, Calaveras County officers wrote 41 speeding citations and 23 others for violations that included failure to use a seatbelt, expired registration and mechanical errors, according to Butzler.

The CHP urges everyone to plan a safe ride home before the parties begin.
