A man was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol on Friday, Sept. 21, after an officer on patrol saw his vehicle traveling in the wrong lane on the Post Road.

Police said an officer on patrol observed a 2004 GMC Savana exit I-95 at Exit 13 southbound and turn left on the Post Road, proceeding westbound in the eastbound lane of travel, shortly after midnight.

After stopping the vehicle as it began to re-enter I-95 southbound at entrance 13, the officer detected an odor of alcoholic beverage emanating from the driver's compartment.

So glad to see the police catch some of these guys. DUIs and DWIs have been a huge problem in the area --- Rt. 1, Rt. 124, Rt. 123...I mean, I see it all the time. I'm always driving super defensively in Fairfield County --- especially after sundown. People don't stay in their lanes and encroach into opposing traffic lanes; they swerve. Anytime there's a driver moving in a bit of a slow zig zag --- whether from being intoxicated or texting or talking on a cell phone, I steer as far away from them as possible and try to get around and away from them as quickly as possible. Crazy , irresponsible drivers around these parts.

Angie S. if you think drunk, irresponsible drivers are only found are "these parts", you are mistaken. I applaud the Darien police for their efforts to keep Darien safe.
