KLBK News

Lubbock Police said they made 390 DWI arrests through November of 2018. The numbers slightly decreased from 2017, where they made 492 DWI arrests during the same period of time. 

Sergeant Timothy Seely, a Lubbock police officer, said their partnership with DPS and the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office helps catch drunk drivers.

They said they hope to keep the streets safer every year for Lubbock residents.  

“I guess if we had all the answers, we could completely eliminate DWI, is ultimately the goal, but we know that’s not really going to happen,” said Seely, “If you consume alcohol, don’t get behind a wheel and operate a mobile vehicle. Use an Uber, use your taxis, use Lyft.”

Being arrested for drunk driving could include jail time and a $10,000 fine.
