The city comes in at No. 10 on a list ranking urban areas by the number of drivers who have gotten DUIs on their records. Local officials said that they were troubled but not surprised by the result, noting that there are a large number of drunk driving arrests that take place every year in the city. In addition, local police often focus heavily on sobriety checkpoints and other tactics that lead to more drunk-driving arrests.
