The 2011 Summer/Labor Day Holiday DUI Mobilization crackdown on drinking drivers has ended and resulted in a significant number of DUI arrests from the Sobriety Checkpoints, Special Saturation Patrols and routine patrol in the Stanislaus County “AVOID” DUI Campaign for the past 18 days.
From 12:01 a.m. Aug. 19, through midnight Monday, officers representing 12 county law enforcement agencies arrested 110 individuals for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In 2010 183 DUI arrests occurred during the same time period.
The number of arrests is provisional because some agencies have yet to report their totals.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
