DUI Holiday Crackdown Results in 154 Arrests

The Orange County Register is reporting that police arrested 154 Orange County drivers on suspicion of DUI during its crackdown last week.

This statistic reflects the total of number of DUI arrests that were made in all Orange County cities from Dec. 18 through December 25. Fortunately, there were no fatalities.

And while 154 arrests may seem like a large number, Sgt. J. Brittain of the Orange County Sheriff's Department Traffic Bureau believes the actual number of arrests will be higher because not all agencies have finished reporting their statistics.

Statewide, 970 people were arrested for DUI, which is up from last year's 824 arrests. During the "maximum-enforcement period," which started at 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve and lasted until Sunday at midnight, the California Highway Patrol made 53 DUI arrests statewide.

The California Office of Traffic Safety announced its plans to spend $8 million in checkpoint grants next year for the state, with a dozen Orange County cities receiving about $420,500 to be used for checkpoints throughout the year, especially during Labor Day weekend and the winter holidays.

Anaheim and Aliso Viejo have already scheduled DUI saturation patrols for New Year's Eve.
