Twice as many collisions/crashes occur between the hours of 3:00 PM and 6:00 Pm on FRIDAYS versus the rest of the week.

Your chances of getting pulled to the curb by PD for a "DUI enforcement stop" after 8:00 PM on both Friday and Saturday night are quite high. Once the cops pull you to the curb they are highly motivated to "find something wrong" which means $$$$$ out of hip national bank and/or a night, two or three in jail.

Reason #98 to get your business done during DAYLIGHT HOURS.
If that's true then and nut did not fall far from the tree.

More congestion = more collisions....duh?
Fri and sat night is party night...more drinkers = more dui stops....again...duh?

I was stopped for a DUI when I lived in Tucson back in the '90s. I don't drink so I found it a bit funny. He asked some question did the follow the finger with your eyes thing....sent me on my way.
