No Fatalities, but 215 DUI Arrests in Summer Campaign

The end of summer drunk driving campaign is on.

The Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office, which coordinates the "Avoid the 13" drunk driving campaigns throughout the year, have reported 215 arrests from 15 law enforcement agencies in the county since the summer/Labor Day campaign began Aug. 17.

DUI checkpoints will be conducted on Saturday September 1, in the cities of San Jose and Milpitas. Extra DUI units called "saturation patrols" will be deployed in the cities of Campbell, Milpitas, Los Altos, Mountain View, Los Gatos, Palo Alto, San Jose, Santa Clara, Gilroy, Sunnyvale, Morgan Hill, Cupertino, Saratoga, Los Altos Hills, and the unincorporated areas of Santa Clara County.

Research has shown that the end of summer and the Labor Day weekend is a dangerous period for accidents related to drunk driving. 

Arrests made in Los Altos Hills, Cupertino and Saratoga are handled by the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Department, or the California Highway Patrol, and figures from those agencies are not broken down by city.
