ASK A TROOPER
■ Answer: Alcohol related crashes and DWI (driving while intoxicated) arrests do happen in the morning, we see it all the time. Those number of DWI arrests do not compare to what occurs on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but surely something to be looked at and aware of. We are going to have more crashes when we have more cars on the road and when drivers are in a hurry. If we add fatigued drivers with alcohol still in their system from the night before, crashes will increase.
