As the end of the year approaches the tallies have come in to determine which counties in North Carolina have made the most DWI arrests this year. The North Carolina Highway Patrol releases the numbers. Eight years in a row there are two counties in North Carolina that have consistently led in this category, which would be New Hanover and Brunswick counties.

State troopers arrested 1,569 people for DWI in 2012. State troopers credit in part the reason for the higher numbers in these counties is due to the large number of beaches and the university which attracts more people.
