The Independence Day “Avoid the 13” DUI crackdown on Tuesday yielded 11 arrests in comparison to 45 in 2011 during the same 24-hour time period.
Officers representing Santa Clara Clara County law enforcement agencies made the arrests between 12:01 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, said San Jose Srg. Jose Cardoza. As of Wednesday afternoon, there had not been any July 4 arrests.
The campaign is cracking down on alcohol or drug impaired driving through increased sobriety checkpoints, and roving and saturation points, among other methods, according to the CHP.
On Wednesday, extra DUI saturation patrols are being deployed in Los Altos, Campbell, Mountain View, Santa Clara and San Jose.
Below are the arrests that have been made so far in the two-day campaign, according to Srg. Cardoza. Last year’s campaign totaled five days.
