During the Cinco de Mayo “Avoid the 8” DUI saturation patrol, the Yolo County law-enforcement team conducted 32 vehicle stops, put seven drivers through a series of field sobriety tests but made no arrests for drunken driving.
Two vehicles were impounded for 30 days because the driver was driving while their license was suspended or revoked. Fifteen drivers received citations for other various vehicle code violations.
One driver was arrested on a Yolo County warrant for driving on a suspended license because of a prior DUI conviction. A second driver was arrested for being in possession of a controlled substance and operating a motor vehicle with a suspended/revoked license from a previous DUI conviction.
This operation was supported by the AVOID program, a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
