Albany DWI "Blanket Patrol"

Big news in Albany - this past weekend had a "blanket patrol" per Capital News 9.

Nice bit from the story - 944 traffic stops and 21 "drunk driving" arrests. If I've got this right, they interrupted the lives of about 1100 people (figuring 1.2 people per car) to make 21 arrests.

Also seems like 21 DWI arrests on a weekend for 11 municipalities is less than normal, not more. Maybe they should just focus on routine traffic enforcement.
