Oregon New Year’s Holiday DUI Arrests, Fatalities Lowest Since 2010, 2003

Oregon had no fatalities over New Years holiday on roads
(Oregon State Patrol)

For the third time since 1970 there were no fatalities on Oregon roads and highways during the New Year’s Holiday.

The Oregon Traffic Safety Commission reports during the 30-hour reporting period from six pm New Year’s Eve through midnight New Year’s day,   DUI arrests totaled 29,  of which only two were recorded in by the Pendleton office – which covers pretty much all of Northeastern Oregon.   Last year,  over 78 drivers were cited for DUI.

And for the first time since 2010, which had a 78-hour reporting period due to where holiday landed on calendar, there were no reported fatalities.  Before 2010, it last happened in 2003 and 1970!   It appears Oregon motorists did a good job of keeping off the streets if they were going to be drinking New Year’s Eve.
