"Throughout Pennsylvania, state police made a record 16,900 arrests for driving under the influence, an increase of 4 percent over 2008. The number of DUI accidents in the state dropped 1 percent to 4,625.

"Our troopers are helping to save lives by cracking down hard on those who drink and drive," state police Commissioner Frank Pawlowski said today. Alcohol-related fatalities were down 14 percent, from 161 in 2008 to 141 in 2009, he said."

Frank is either a liar or he's being ill informed by his handlers. He can not prove his assertion of a link between DUI arrests and traffic fatalities.

Job well done an increase of 4%. Hopefully when Pa.'s new immigration bill passes we will see as much attention,directed to this.I think a goal of 16,900 arrests of illegal immigrants is a great place to start.Look at the criminal element it would eliminate,and tax dollars saved to the state.Frank when Rendell leaves office,I know you can get this done.Just set up check -points, like for d.u.i. except no papers, no green card, your deported.You guys can do this- Go P.S.P.
