CHAMPAIGN -- A new survey shows the city has one of the lowest DUI arrest rates in the state. Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists does a survey each year. The survey shows Champaign had 222 arrests.

Statewide police report arrests have decreased by 25.7%. Counselors are trying to help that number go down even more by giving free DUI classes to families.

Other nearby cities have twice the arrests of Champaign. Decatur has 408, Springfield has 460.
