The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says it kept busy in the Tulsa area arresting 13 drivers for driving under the influence late Tuesday and early Wednesday.

Another four were taken to jail for having an open container and one person faces a felony charge for selling alcohol to a minor.

OHP Lt. Ron Hamilton said he stopped a driver on I-44 near Harvard after the driver sped by him doing 80 mph in a 60 mph speed zone late Tuesday.

Hamilton said the driver was arrested for DUI and taken to the Tulsa County jail.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said 136 tickets and warnings were issued by troopers, Tulsa Police, Tulsa County Sheriff's Office and ABLE officers during a multi-agency New Years DUI enforcement crackdown between 7 p.m. and 3 a.m.

"I am extremely proud of the hard work put forth by all the law enforcement personnel involved.  We believe we can use this project as a life-saving model for DUI prevention and enforcement efforts nationwide," said OHP Captain George Brown.

During the stepped up enforcement effort Brown said there were no collisions reported in Tulsa County.  He said this is the third year since the inception of this project that Tulsa County has remained free of injury crashes.
