DUI Dishonor Roll

About one-third of all drivers arrested for DUI are repeat offenders

Once again we had only one drunk driver taken off our streets over the past weekend, down from the usual 3 or 4 when UMass is in session.

And like last week our incapacitated driver, Paul R. Comtois,  age 43, was bagged on a major travel road (Rt 9), in the wee hours of the morning (1:42 a.m.) and he has no obvious connection to UMass. 

Although unlike last week's "winner" this Perp is a repeat offender.  Times three!

Yet, even when UMass is in session, a good majority of DUI's seem to stem from an older crowd not affiliated with the school.

Employees seem to make the list, however.

But since UMass is the #1 employer in Amherst, not so surprising I guess.

"Seem"? it either is or isn't, it's objective data. If you've got some, share it to support your "hypothesis".

And what is a "good" majority? a majority is a majority, no? Wouldn't they be a BAD majority?
