Spike in DUI Fatalities in San Diego

DUI fatalitiesSan Diego officials are calling this the “Summer of Shame” after a spike in DUI fatalities this year.

San Diego County District Attorney’s Office has conducted an analysis beginning in May. The number of DUI fatalities are alarming.

From June 1st to August 26th there have been five deaths due to DUI accidents.

The DA’s DUI homicide unit was forced to add more assistant prosecutors to help handle the work load.

Statistics presented that nearly half the DUI drivers had a blood alcohol level that was almost twice the legal limit.

Even though there has been a spike in DUI fatalities, the number of misdemeanor DUI prosecutions have decreased significantly over that last five years.

There will be a meeting with officials to discuss a plan that will decrease the number of fatalities.

DUI fatalities are devastating for family and friends. It’s important to have the best representation to make sure you are treated fairly.
