According to the LA Times, the California Highway Patrol arrested 246 people for DUI / Drunk Driving statewide on Christmas Eve, 2009. On Christmas Eve, 2008, the CHP arrested 167 people for DUI / Drunk Driving. This represents a 47% increase in Christmas Eve DUI / Drunk Driving arrests from 2008 to 2009. In Los Angeles County, the CHP arrested 71 people for DUI / Drunk Driving on Christmas Eve, 2009, compared to 30 people arrested for DUI / Drunk Driving on Christmas Eve, 2008. This represents a whopping 136% increase in Christmas Eve DUI / Drunk Driving arrests from 2008 to 2009. It wouldn't suprise me that for the upcoming New Year's Eve, there is even a greater increase in DUI / Drunk Driving arrests by the CHP compared to New's Year Eve, 2008, both statewide as well as in LA County.
