DUI campaign nets 13 arrests so far

A winter holiday DUI crackdown has resulted in more than a dozen arrests by members of Yolo County’s “Avoid the 8″ task force, officials announced Saturday.

Between 12:01 a.m. Dec. 14 and midnight Friday, officers representing eight Yolo County county law enforcement agencies arrested 13 people on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, according to Davis police Sgt. Rod Rifredi. That number is provisional only, however, as some agencies have not yet reported their arrest numbers.

For the New Year’s Eve holiday, weekend a DUI checkpoint will be conducted in the city of Woodland from 8 p.m. Monday until 2 a.m. Tuesday, Rifredi said. Also, DUI saturation patrols will be deployed in the cities of Davis, Winters, West Sacramento and in unincorporated Yolo County.

The CHP also will send out all available officers for their maximum enforcement period during the New Year’s holiday weekend, ending midnight Tuesday.

All regularly scheduled traffic and patrol officers will focus efforts at stopping and arresting DUI drivers during their normal shifts, Rifredi said. Multiple DUI/driver’s license checkpoints, multi-agency DUI task-force operations and local roving DUI patrols are all part of this region-wide crackdown during the 19-day winter holiday campaign.

Law-enforcement agencies encourage all motorists to report suspected drunk drivers by calling 911.
