You Drink & Drive. You Lose. Update

LINCOLN -- DUI arrests are down so far during the Lincoln Police Department's annual enforcement effort. Police Chief, Jim Peschong, hopes it means there are fewer drunk drivers on the roads, but admits it may just be a slow start. Since November 30th, there have been 51 arrests compared to 82 DUI arrests last year at this time...but it's picking up. Last weekend, there were 24 arrests in 3 days. The highest blood-alcohol level has been .285...point 08 is the legal limit. The enforcement campaign runs through New Year's Day.
