DUI arrests down 11.5 percent in 2012 in LaSalle County

(MCT) — OTTAWA — LaSalle County saw 633 driving-under-the-influence arrests last year, an 11.5 percent drop from the year before.

Officials are citing the requirement that has even first-time DUI offenders using breath analysis devices before they can start their cars.

The high point for DUI arrests was 2008, when 824 DUI arrests were made and 13 people were killed in alcohol-related crashes in the county. Five people died last year in such accidents.
