More Than 2,500 DUI Arrests in Delaware So Far This Year: Officials

Police plan to target intoxicated driving with extra patrols

Officials say more than 2,500 people have been charged with driving under the influence in Delaware this year.

The News Journal reports that 102 people were arrested across the state last week and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The Office of Highway Safety says one person was charged with his fifth DUI offense, a felony charge.

Officials warn that Checkpoint Strikeforce's saturation patrols, which aim to take impaired drivers off the road through highly visible enforcement, will target Newark this Friday.
