Clearwater Police officers were stationed throughout the city on the lookout for impaired drivers during New Year's.
Rather than risk the drive many chose to take a cab.
"Some local cab companies reported a two hour wait for their services, which indicates more drivers who had been drinking used these services rather than risk driving themselves," Elizabeth Watts, police spokeswoman, said in a release.
Still officers arrested and charged three drivers with driving under the influence, issued 33 speeding tickets and arrested six others for misdeameanor crimes, according to police.
Officers from the Special Operations/Traffic Enforcement Team were on the lookout for impaired and aggressive drivers as well as other traffic violations from 8 p.m. Monday through 4 a.m Tuesday.
Here are the complete results:
- Three DUI arrests
- Eight driving while license is stolen or revoked
- 33 speeding citations
- 10 other moving citations
- 16 non-moving citations
- 38 warnings
- Six misdemeanor arrests
