Calls from the community resulted in the arrest of two individuals for driving under the influence over Labor Day weekend in the city of McMinnville.“McMinnville Police Department made three impaired driving arrests over the Labor Day weekend and two of those arrests were actually the result of concerned citizens observing someone’s bad driving and calling to have us check it out,” said Police Department Lt. Mark Mara. “I think it’s great the community is stepping up to help us make the roads safer. Those calls led to the removal of two people who shouldn’t have been behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.”The National Safety Council says Labor Day weekend is one of the deadliest times for traffic fatalities.
