DUI arrests down during holiday campaign
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.

The California Highway Patrol and officers representing all county law enforcement agencies will continue its increased patrols of freeways and county roads through Sunday, July 6. The CHP also encourages all motorists to report drunk drivers to 911.
