Tully Rinckey PLLC Partner Peter J. Pullano Esq. discusses drop in DWI arrests with WHAM 1180.


Area DWI Arrests Lower in 2013: Lawyer Says Drivers Are Smarter

Rochester, NY — An analysis of DWI arrest statistics for our nine-county region shows arrest numbers were down in 2013 for a second consecutive year — and sharply lower than they were in 2008.

Area attorney Peter Pullano, with the Tully Rinckey firm, says there is only one factor: Smarter drivers. He says drivers are being more careful to stay away from the wheel when they are intoxicated.

DWI arrests in the region were down four-tenths of one percent last year. The numbers fell more than 4 percent in Monroe and Livingston counties.

Pullano says the only other possible explanation would be less enforcement — but he says we know police are doing their job.
