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.
