Everyone knows, or should know, that during holiday weekends police officers are out in greater numbers to try to curtail the number of traffic fatalities attributed to drunken drivers -- and this past holiday weekend was no exception.

Now, the Tarrant County District Attorney's Office has published a list of more than three dozen people who have been charged with DWI for alcohol-related arrests over the New Year's weekend.

The DA's office said 107 people were arrested over the holiday weekend for an "alcohol-related" offenses and is adding names to the growing list of those charged as fast as they can.

You can see the list here, but if you're on it you likely already know.

On the site the DA reminds all readers that all persons charged with criminal conduct are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

In the city of Dallas, the No-Refusal weekend resulted in 31 DWI arrests where 16 people gave voluntary breath samples, another eight gave voluntary blood samples and six refused to provide a sample. For those six, blood warrants were obtained to get a sample of their blood.
