The Washington State Patrol (WSP) says there has been an increase in the number of driving under the influence (DUI) arrests they have made during daytime hours so far this year.
Already, the WSP has arrested 45 DUI drivers by March 12 as compared with 49 through April of last year reports King5.com.
The WSP has added troopers to areas where they see the most DUI arrests.
Typically, there are more DUI arrests between the hours of 11pm and 3am though people can and do consume alcohol and drive at all hours of the day; the problem of daytime DUI is more common than one might think. During daytime hours, however, drunk drivers may be more difficult to detect because of the traffic flow.
