Community: 177 DUI arrests by L.A.
County policing agencies Sun-Mon. Avoid 100 Policing Agencies


The Super Bowl DUI Mobilization crackdown on drinking drivers resulted in
a significant number of DUI arrests from the sobriety checkpoints,
special saturation patrols and routine patrols in Los Angeles County
yesterday. From 12:01 AM Sunday, February 2 to 12:00 AM Monday, February
3, officers representing 100 county law enforcement agencies arrested 177
individuals for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Nine of
these arrests were a result of a DUI crash causing great bodily injury to
another person. (Note: These results are preliminary with some agencies
yet to report.)

Law enforcement officials will be conducting more “Avoid the 100” DUI
operations during St Patrick’s Day, Cinco de Mayo and the Memorial Day
weekend holiday. 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
