No DUI deaths, few arrests reported

"We put a high priority on DUI incidents," Raiche said. "On New Year's Eve we put a particular focus on Destin and Okaloosa Island because that is where a number of people travel to in order to celebrate New Year's."

He attributed the low number of incidents to the OSCO’s support of the national "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign.

"There was a lot of media awareness with this," Raiche said, also crediting private programs.

"I know some attorneys would have a program where they would pay for taxi ride home," Raiche said.
