From the NY Post:
Corona, Queens, which shares a name with the popular Mexican beer, leads the city in drunk-driving arrests, NYPD statistics show.
There were 257 drunk-driving arrests so far this year in the 115th Precinct, which includes parts of Corona, East Elmhurst and Jackson Heights.
Roosevelt Avenue, in the heart of the neighborhood, has 80 bars and booze-peddling restaurants attracting drivers from around the region.
"They are always drinking around here," said beauty-shop owner Maria Samaniego. "The reason why you have a lot of drunk driving around here is because you have a lot of bars."
While DWI busts have dropped over 8 percent citywide so far this year compared with the same period in 2009, arrests remained exactly the same in the 115th Precinct.
The neighboring 110th Precinct — which includes Elmhurst and the rest of Corona, with notoriously hard-to-find mass transit and yellow cabs — had 167 DWI arrests through June 6 for the city's second highest total.
Elmhurst and Corona have "notoriously hard-to-find mass transit"??? They have the 7, E, F, V and R as well as many bus lines...
Yellow cabs aren't usually around, but the gypsy cabs pick you up.
Nice try, but that's not the reason.
