San Francisco Rings in 2012 with No DUI-Related Deaths
|Thanks for not driving after drinking your body weight in alcohol|
Perhaps part of the reason nobody was killed is that officers nabbed plenty of drunks on San Francisco streets. According to Captain Al Casciato, police arrested 129 people on suspicion of driving while intoxicated between Dec. 16, 2011 and Jan 1, 2012. That's a 29 percent increase from last year's 100 DUI arrests.
Aside from thanking the various agencies that helped get drunk drivers off the road, Casciato also congratulated all of you who thought twice before getting behind the wheel after a night of slamming shots.
"Thanks to ... all the intelligent, responsible people who would never even consider driving drunk," he said.
We'll drink to that.
