There were six DUI arrests for Clallam and Jefferson counties (Port Angeles Detachments); one from a cell caller and two from injury collisions.

Motorists observing erratic or unsafe driving should not engage the other motorist but report the incident instead using their cellular phones by dialing 9-1-1.
