Albany -- Drinking and driving cases in Albany and Dougherty County were reduced this New Year's. Albany Police report making only 6 DUI arrests on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.

 Officers think the rainy weather kept many people home. But they were glad that most reveler's did not get behind the wheel after celebrating the New Year.

Albany Police Department Lt. Lucious Harris said "Maybe the word has gotten out that if you drink and drive, you will get caught and will be charged. I'm hoping that's what has occurred."

Dougherty County Police report only one Driving under the influence arrest New Year's Eve and Day.
