The 2013 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 Napa County “AVOID” DUI Campaign for the past 18 days.
From 12:01 a.m. Friday Aug. 16th, through midnight Monday Sept.2, officers representing nine county law enforcement agencies have arrested 106 individuals for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
In 2012, 92 DUI arrests occurred during
the same time period.
These numbers are in comparison to last years’ totals during the holiday period.
