The 2013/14 Winter Holiday DUI Mobilization crackdown on drinking drivers has ended and resulted in a significant number of DUI arrests from the sobriety checkpoints, special saturation patrols and routine patrols in Los Angeles County over the past 20 days. 
From 12:01 a.m. Friday December 13th, through midnight Wednesday January 1, 2014, officers representing 100 county law enforcement agencies have arrested 2,268 individuals for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In 2012/13, 2,168 DUI arrests occurred during the 19 day holiday campaign. (**NOTE: These numbers are provisional with some agencies yet to report.**) 
Law enforcement officials will be conducting more “Avoid the 100” DUI operations during Super Bowl Sunday in February and then again for St Patrick’s Day festivities in March. Police, Sheriff and the CHP encourage motorists to help law enforcement every day: Report Drunk Drivers – Call 9-1-1 anytime you encounter an impaired driver. 
DUI checkpoints, along with regularly scheduled high visibility DUI enforcement operations, are proven strategies for removing impaired drivers from the road and heightening awareness of the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, sobriety checkpoint programs can yield considerable cost savings: $6 for every $1 spent. 
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
