A holiday crackdown on impaired driving by Yolo County’s Avoid the 8 task force resulted in 60 DUI arrests over a 20-day period, authorities announced Friday.
The arrests were the result of sobriety checkpoints, saturation patrols and regular patrols throughout the county between Dec. 13 and Jan. 1, said Davis police Sgt. Rod Rifredi, task force coordinator. Officers also served warrants on 10 DUI offenders.
There were no fatal collisions reported in Yolo County during the crackdown period, although there were two injury collisions being investigated in which alcohol may have been a factor, Rifredi said.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
