The summer is long and police will continue to be vigilant with DUIs.
CHP is just one jurisdiction in San Diego county that made DUI arrests. It will be interesting what the finals numbers say. The fact is people make unwise decisions. Police make arrests that end up not being DUI arrests. Alcohol is a fabric of our culture, especially the social scene. These factors will mean DUIs will continue. The key is to have the community be as safe as possible and ensure sanctions fit the conduct. Most importantly, that individuals rights are protected.
