EL PASO - A special DWI task force arrested ten people for driving while intoxicated in 10 hours.

Last night police kicked off their supplemental DWI task force at 6 p.m. and it ended at 4 a.m. In that time, they also arrested 3 people for other offenses, issued 61 hazardous citations, 48 non-hazardous citations, and arrested three minors for drinking.

The effort will continue every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. It's all apart of their "Arrive Alive" combating alcohol-related deaths and accidents.

Does this Arrive Alive also apply to off duty police who are out having a few cold ones after work, or do they just get a slap on the wrist?

I think that people who want to party should stay home or just have somebody to drive for
them, but some of this people that drink get a
little out of hand once they have more then a
few and they wnat to be the one behind the wheel
and thats when it gets to hard to control their
actions, if you try to they get angry right away
and so forth.

what about the big crash that happened this Friday 28 early morning at the intersection of Kansas and missouri. Why it is not on the news??? From my point of view in what I saw it seemed that somebody got hurt really bad or died on the scene.

Why did it have to take all these deaths to occur for "el paso's finest" to start doing their job

drunk drivers don't take breaks, they are out every day. by sending out the task force only on thursday through Saturday, it gives them leeway of four days to continue to endanger innocent lives. why not have the task force out every day?
