Yet Another Reason Not to Drive to the Village

The city’s DUI arrests are up across the board this year, largely because of the West Village’s 6th Precinct, which the New York Post reports has seen more than a 100 percent increase thanks in part to help from the neighborhood’s bouncers: “If we see someone stumbling out of the bar and getting into a car, we take a picture of the license and call or text it [to the police],” one told the paper. Even with last year’s rate increase, taxis are about a thousand times cheaper than a DUI.
