DUI arrests way down in 2009
Drinking and driving arrests were way down in 2009 and it's not because the Rosemount Police Department has relaxed on the issue. It seems tough enforcement over the last several years has led to some changes.
Lt. Jewel Ericson said he believes increased media efforts and strict enforcement have brought more awareness to the public about drinking and driving. He said the message seems to have affected people's habits.
