Onslow County has now released their numbers for DWI related fatalities for the 2012 year. In good news for the county there were no DWI fatalities within Jacksonville city limits during 2012. However the number for the county as a whole has increased since 2011. The total number DWI fatalities for the county was 10 for 2012 which accounts for more than half of all traffic fatalities in that county.
The number for 2011 was only 2. In 2010 the county had four DWI related fatalities. The reason for the increase between 2011 and 2012 is unknown, but it is likely that law enforcement in that area will be stepping up patrols in an attempt to tackle the increasing numbers.
