- Arizona Police Begin Holiday DUI Enforcement Campaigns
December 5, 2016
Arizona law enforcement officials have launched annual holiday DUI enforcement and sober designated driver campaigns in an effort to reduce impaired driving during the holiday season.
Federal, state and local officials have teamed up for heightened enforcement through New Year’s to make Arizona’s streets a safer place for motorists and pedestrians. More than 9,000 law enforcement officers are expected to monitor the roads.
Officials have stated that impaired driving has now become a social problem as much as a law enforcement issue. With drunk driving deaths at a three-year high, officials are calling for drunk driving to become socially unacceptable.
In 2015, the state reported more than 25,000 drunk driving arrests. Phoenix police have reportedly made 1,900 DUI arrests so far in 2016. There were 330 DUI arrests made during the Thanksgiving holiday from Nov. 23-26, an increase of 16 arrests compared to last year.
Arizona law enforcement agencies feel there is an urgent need to ensure safer roads this holiday season and into the New Year.
Wrong-way collisions are also a significant concern for Arizona state officials. Although this type of accident comprises of only three percent of total accidents, wrong-way collisions are 27 percent more likely to cause a fatal accident and are responsible for more than 400 traffic deaths in the U.S. each year.
The Arizona Department of Transportation has been working diligently to reduce wrong-way driving by installing signs that turn red when a motorist begins to travel the wrong way and a pilot project that utilizes sensors and cameras to detect drunk drivers.

I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
