County seeing fewer drunken driving arrests

In the past five years, fewer drunken drivers have been arrested in Johnson County, which could be a sign that police checkpoints and education blitzes are working, police said.

In 2008, just more than 1,000 drivers were arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. In 2012, that number had fallen by nearly 34 percent to 672.

Police said they are on track to make even fewer arrests this year.
