INDEPENDENCE DAY WEEKEND AVOID DUI CAMPAIGN-SATURDAY UPDATE 3

DUI Arrests Up & No DUI Fatalities
The Independence Day Weekend Anti DUI crackdown is reporting DUI arrests from local routine traffic enforcement and special Avoid the 14 DUI deployments in Ventura County.

From 12:01 AM Wednesday July 3, 2013 through Midnight Friday July 5, 2013 officers representing 14 county law enforcement agencies have arrested 39 individuals for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. 
 
Last year, the holiday was a two-day campaign period which does not match the 5 day effort this year. Last year there were no DUI deaths reported.
            (**NOTE: These numbers are only provisional with some agencies yet to report**)

DUI arrest data collection will continue through midnight Sunday July 7, 2013.  Law enforcement officials are continuing DUI efforts throughout the county and region. Additionally, CHP throughout the state have all available officers patrolling freeways and county roads throughout the weekend for their Maximum Enforcement period (MEP).
 
For Saturday July 6th, extra DUI Saturation Patrols will be deployed in the cities of Oxnard, Ventura, Camarillo, and Thousand Oaks. A DUI Checkpoint is deploying in the City of Moorpark.  Police, Sheriff and the CHP encourage all motorists to help make your community safer: Report Drunk Drivers – Call 911.  Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
 
MEDIA NOTE:  Statistical data on the number of DUI arrests and DUI fatal crashes will be released from the previous day’s activities.  The checkpoint locations will be available for media opportunities or ride-alongs each night.

Avoid programs, named for the number of police agencies in each county, also will concentrate crackdowns during the 18-Day August/Labor Day period.  In recognition that summer season is among the deadliest time of the year, law enforcement agencies throughout the county will be making every effort to arrest drunk drivers before another life is lost.
