LegalLaw247.com, August 27, 2013 ) Phoenix, AZ – Labor Day weekend is less than a week away, with Labor Day falling on September 2nd, and the city of Phoenix is gearing up for yet another weekend of festivities.
Associated with these festivities will be an increased amount of police enforcement as the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign is still in full swing across the nation. Last year in Phoenix there was a total of 11,141 traffic stops across the city accounting for a total of 564 DUI arrests. We can expect police enforcement to be just as aggressive this year in arresting any driver operating under the influence of alcohol.
Some of the total number of traffic stop outcomes in Phoenix from last year’s Labor Day weekend include:
• Total Traffic Stops – 11,141
• Sober Designated Drivers – 428
• Total DUI Arrests – 564
• DUI Aggravated – 60
• DUI Misdemeanor – 504
• DUI Extreme (.15+) – 170
• DUI Arrest with Prior – 37
• Under 21 DUI Arrests – 41
• DUI Drug Arrests – 92
• Average BAC – 0.155
• Seat Belt Citations – 417
• Child Restraint Citations – 60
• Under 21 Liquor Law Citations – 154
• Other Citations (Speeding, tailgating, etc.) – 3,788
