STATEWIDE (3TV/CBS 5) - This map plots the location of wrong-way driving incidents that result in a wreck and/or an arrest. The points on the map are where the incident ended.
While there are hundreds of calls for service regarding wrong-way drivers, not all of those calls end crashes or arrests.

Department of Public Safety troopers responded to more than 1,600 reports of wrong-way drivers in 2016.
"In most instances, these people reorient themselves and exit the highway," DPS spokesman Raul Garcia explained in December.
It's the other instances that are dangerous -- potentially deadly. Arizona averaged more than two wrong-way crashes per month last year.
