Orange County Sheriff's Department Conducts DUI Saturation Patrol, Arrest Nine

Saturation patrols have become an increasingly common tactic used by law enforcement agencies looking to crack down on drunk and impaired driving. In Orange County, a number of local agencies often work together to conduct these saturation patrols at locations and times when the risks of DUI-related accidents, injuries, and deaths are greatest. These times are usually during holidays and weekends.

Because weekends are times when alcohol and drug-related traffic accidents increase, officers are often on high alert for impaired drivers. With saturation patrols, more officers are sent on the streets to look specifically for signs of drivers who may be under the influence. This past weekend, the Orange County Sheriff's Department DUI task force coordinated a saturation patrol in San Clemente, Dana Point, and San Juan Capistrano.

According to officials, the DUI saturation patrol was conducted from Friday night at 7:00 pm to early Saturday at 3:00 am. Officials reported the following:

  • 9 DUI arrests
  • 92 cars stopped
  • 16 field sobriety tests administered
  • 4 unlicensed drivers
  • 3 drivers with suspended licenses

The efforts of local law enforcement make it clear that officers continue to devote extra resources and time into arresting drivers under suspicion of DUI. Although increased efforts are generally applauded, they can come at a price when overzealous officers unfairly arrest drivers, make mistakes during arrests, or otherwise violate the rights of motorists.

If you or someone you love has recently been arrested for DUI, our Orange County DUI attorneys at the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry are prepared to thoroughly review your case, explain your rights, and discuss how we may be able to help.
