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.
