Holiday DUI Task Force Launches in Arizona

December 16, 2021

Law enforcement agencies from around Arizona and the state’s Office of Highway Safety gathered on Dec. 2 at the Arizona Capitol Building to launch a statewide holiday DUI Task Force, reported

According to statistics provided by Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey’s office, every year for the past three years, the DUI task force has arrested more than 4,000 individuals in the state for driving under the influence between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. 

Thanksgiving 2021 witnessed a large increase in the number of extreme DUIs, which are classified as driving with a blood-alcohol content (BAC) of more than 0.15%. From Nov. 24-27, 96 people were arrested for extreme DUIs. This amounts to a more than 21% increase from 2020 (79 extreme DUI arrests) and a 50% increase from 2019 (64). 

Overall, 350 individuals were arrested for DUI during Thanksgiving weekend this year, which is slightly down from the previous year (358) but higher than the number of DUI arrests made in 2019 (330).
