28 people were arrested for Driving under the influence over the holiday weekend due to a crackdown on drunk drivers by both state and municipal police departments.

The state police joined together with police chiefs throughout the state in the “designate before you celebrate” campaign, warning people of the dangers and consequences of drunk driving.

The State police made 11 of the 28 DUI arrests while municipalities made 17 arrests. State Police Superintendent Colonel Steven O’Donnell said “The Rhode Island State Police continues to prioritize DUI enforcement. We stress prevention, but those who decide to endanger our citizens by operating drunk should pay the price for doing so.”

Gabrielle Abbate, Executive Director of Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, commended law enforcements efforts in taking on drunk driving. “MADD salutes Rhode Island law enforcement, who were on the front lines combating drunk driving in order to keep families safe and injury free during the past holiday weekend,” she said.
