Posted on September 4, 2014 at 8:36 AM by Jeffrey Rudinski

 
WPD has experienced a major increase in OUI arrests in 2014, notably OUI drug cases.  Operating under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs is NOT a victimless crime. In 2013,  12,941 people were arrested in Massachusetts for OUI resulting in 126 deaths and thousands of injuries. Since the September 11 terror attacks, over 130,000 men, women, and children have died in America as a result of drunk driving. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that OUI's cost the United States 199 Billion dollars a year or $800 per US adult !!
