Here is the number of arrests and convictions for each offense listed under Transportation Code 524.011 over the last six years.  Crime Records says it will take more time to get a breakdown by county, but could have it by tomorrow late afternoon.

2010

2010

32,497

 

 

There were 8,481 arrests for these offenses in December 2010, and 3,784 convictions.  Given the time it takes to go through the judicial process, it is unlikely that a person arrested in December would also be convicted in December, so take that for what it’s worth.

 

Let us know if you have any other questions!
