Good news, but not good enough. Compared to 100 arrests last year, LA County's California Highway Patrol office is reporting that only 30 drivers have been arrested for driving under the influence between 6 p.m. Wednesday and 6 a.m. Friday this week. Statewide, there have been 167 arrests. The holiday period continues into this weekend with various sobriety checkpoints across the region. Tonight and tomorrow night, the Metro Red Line subway will operate until 3 a.m., so make use of it before the pilot program ends!
