The number of DUI arrests from Lincoln's annual campaign are down this year so far.
Chief Jim Peschong says he hopes that means there are less drunk drivers on the roads, but admits it may just be a slow start to the effort. Last weekend officers were very busy with gang violence.
So far since Nov. 30 there have been 51 arrests. In the same time last year there were 82. Peschong said it is unfortunately picking up, last weekend there were 24 arrests in three days.
The arrests have ranged from as young as 16 to as old as 58, and from as low as a .03 to as high as a .285 blood alcohol level.
The enforcement runs through New Year's Day.
