1,500 DUI Arrests During Holiday Season

In Los Angeles County, 1,500 arrests were made from December 16th to December 25th. This number is up from the 1,260DUI arrests that were made last year.

County Sheriff’s Department and the California Highway Patrol, as well as local police departments.

This effort under the Avoid the 100 campaign will continue throughout New Year’s and more arrests are anticipated. According to task force officials, all traffic and patrol officers will be focusing on stopping drunk drivers.
