Police See Fewer Drunk Drivers

A check of the police and sheriff's departments show there were 69 DUI arrests from Friday, December 29th through New Years Day on Monday. That figure does not include Moss Point, whose numbers were not available.

In the six lower south Mississippi counties, the Highway Patrol charged 10 people with DUI. In years past, it wasn't unusual for police to report 200 to 300 drunk driving arrests during a holiday weekend.
