815 DWI arrests made during St. Patrick’s Day “Booze It & Lose It” program

Posted on April 7th, 2014 No Comments

More than 800 drivers were arrested for driving while impaired from March 14 to March 17 as part of the St. Patrick’s Day holiday “Booze It & Lose It” campaign in Raleigh, North Carolina, according to an article published on March 25 by the Island Gazette.

North Carolina Governor’s Highway Safety Program director Don Nail said their program aims to ensure that drunk drivers will be penalized for driving behind the wheel after drinking during the holiday, which is traditionally celebrated with large amounts of drinking.

The top five counties that had the most DWI arrests in Raleigh during the campaign included Wake County (92 arrests), Mecklenburg County (64 arrests), Cumberland County (41 arrests), Guilford County (39 arrests), and Robeson County (32 arrests).

Statewide, law enforcement officers issued 1,685 safety belt violations, 282 child passenger safety violations, 6,579 speeding violations, 170 work zone violations, and 729 drug charges.
