15 DUIs, 205 Speeding Tickets During Boat Race Weekend
Local law enforcement probably needed a power nap after this weekend's shenanigans. 205 speeding tickets were given out. Some speeders were in the excess of 100MPH. WSP employed eyes in the sky to catch folks trying to make the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs.
The weekend also saw 15 DUIs and 12 crashes. One DUI-related crash sent someone to the hospital. Of course, you may have heard about the DUI driver that went through Columbia Park as the event was ending.
Even though DUI numbers were up from last year, it seems we had a pretty safe weekend. As always, if you're gonna be drinking, make sure you have a plan. The nice thing about Uber or Lyft, is you don't have to plan too far in advance unless you're too sloppy to function.
