In Benton County, deputies only arrested two people accused of driving drunk on New Year’s Eve: Lawrence Nelson and Casey Harjo.
Deputies say the low number could be because the holiday was in the middle of the week, but there are other factors.
“We hope our education efforts of telling the public not to drink and drive and our presence out there contributes to it as well,” said Capt. Greg Ridler, Benton County Sheriff’s Office.
The Corvallis Police Department didn’t make any arrests.
