Study Pinpoints Where And When To Avoid Tampa’s Drunk Drivers

Hillsborough County averages nearly 6,000 DUI arrests a year and that leads the state. The statistics that are kept by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office are the basis for a comprehensive study by FOX 13 on drunk driving in the Tampa Bay area. The study found that drunk drivers are more often on the roads Thursday thru Sunday and the time with the highest number of DUI crashes coming between midnight Saturday and 3:00 a.m. Sunday.

According to the statistics FOX 13 gathered, the top hot spot for DUI in the City of Tampa is in Hyde Park near Howard and Kennedy. Dale Mabry in Carrollwood, Adamo Drive just off I-75, the intersection of Fletcher and Nebraska and all of the Bay Area Bridges are also frequent places drivers are cited for DUI. With a last call of 3:00 a.m. in Pinellas, many drivers are zooming over Tampa Bay bridges drunk since last call in Hillsborough is an hour earlier.
