23 drivers were arrested on suspicion of drunk driving on San Diego County highways and freeways over the first 36 hours of the long Thanksgiving Day weekend, San Diego dui lawyers learned yesterday.
Between 6 p.m. Wednesday and 6 a.m. Friday, these drivers were handcuffed by the California Highway Patrol DUI cops, who said there were 22 San Diego DUI arrests made in the same time period last year, attorneys relate.
Statewide, the CHP made 334 California DUI arrests compared to 401 in 2013.
The CHP tallies do not include San Diego county DUI arrests made on city streets and other roadways not patrolled by the state agency. That information is forthcoming.
