July 05, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

Arrests of drivers driving while intoxicated are down so far this holiday weekend compared to the same time last year, according to local law enforcement.

From 12:01 a.m. through midnight Thursday, July 3, officers in the Avoid the 23 San Mateo County DUI campaign arrested only one individual for allegedly driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Last year, five people were arrested during the same 24-hour stretch.
