Spring Break 2015 By the Numbers

Although spring break crowds were much smaller than in years past due to the poor weather, enforcement actions by Corpus Christi Police Officers on Padre Island Beaches resulted in the following statistics.

 

Officers placed a strong emphasis on keeping the streets safe for both spring breakers and local residents by increasing the number of officers assigned to DWI patrol.  As a result, Officers made 21 Driving While Intoxicated arrests during this year’s spring break period (March 13th through March 22nd), compared to zero in 2014.

 

Perhaps the number that CCPD is proudest to report is zero:  Zero traffic fatalities; Zero DWI related major accidents; and Zero serious assaults on the beach (stabbings, shootings, beatings, etc.)

 
339 traffic citations
21 DWI arrests (up from zero in 2014). Twelve were blood draws and nine blew on the Intoxilyzer (7 at Tortuga, 2 at CDC)
16 Minor In Possession of Alcohol
16 Glass Container violations
9 No Insurance Impounds
7 Misdemeanor warrants
5 Driving in Dunes warnings
5 DWLI/DWLS arrests
4 Public Intoxication arrests

1 Reckless driving arrest
1 Possession of Controlled Substance arrest
