Early results from police show there were more arrests this year in Oregon for drunk and impaired driving compared to New Years Eve 2009. Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers reported more DUII arrests around the state in comparison to last year during New Year’s Eve night. “ It’s always tough to try to figure out why there was a jump this year compared to last year. Because 2 years ago we actually had a higher number than what we have this year. So, sometime it seems to ride like a roller coaster, but no matter what the numbers, hopefully they’re having an impact; they’re removing impaired drivers from the road before they involved in a collision.” Lt. Gregg Hastings says the data covered the time period from New Years Eve to 6 am on January first. OSP troopers reported 41 DUII arrests around the state of which eighteen were after midnight. Last year, troopers reported 34 DUII arrests during the New Year's Eve night.
