The number of drunken driving arrests for women has risen almost 40 percent over the past decade, according to a national study, though law enforcement oäcials in Abilene say they have not noticed such a trend.

The study, titled "State of Knowledge: Female Drunk Drivers" and released this week by the Traffic Injury Research Foundation, says the number of female motorists arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated shot up 36 percent from 2000 to 2010.
