We looked at the average numbers for the past three years and found that officers meet and greet about 558 drivers in a DUI check lane in
. Roughly 7% (40) of the drivers are tested and of
those tested about 15% (6) are arrested. Overland Park
Friday, 276 drivers entered the check lane. Officers tested 17 drivers (6%) and arrested 3 of the tested drivers (17%).
In addition to the impaired drivers 8 drivers were charged with transporting open containers of alcohol.
It goes to show that even when there are fewer drivers, the likelihood of impaired drivers is still there and wherever there is a possibility of an impaired driver, there’s going to be a need for DUI enforcement.
