The Chemung County Sheriff’s Office made two DUI arrests in the days surrounding Christmas.
Although it’s more than what is wanted, it is a relatively low number during the holiday season.
“I think the fact that they’re lower numbers, people are taking things a little bit more responsibly, they’re using alternative means to travel,” Undersheriff Bill Schrom of the Chemung County Sheriff’s Office, said.
In the days leading up to the new year, the undersheriff said enforcement efforts will increase in order to keep the roadways safe with hopes to bring the arrest number even lower.
“Just to try to ensure a safe holiday season for everybody,” Undersheriff Schrom said.
