Thanksgiving week is a big week for police in Southeastern, Connecticut since that day is one of the heaviest traffic days of the year. Thanksgiving eve is also one of the heaviest drinking days of the year. Unfortunately, many of those drinkers end up driving home.
Police Departments all over Connecticut increased their officers on patrol to crack-down on people who decide to drink and drive during the Thanksgiving holiday season. This year, the Connecticut State Police made 62 DUI arrests on Thanksgiving eve and day.
This is not an unusual procedure for Connecticut Police Departments. With the upcoming holiday season approaching, think twice before getting behind the wheel after consuming alcohol.
