Narrative:

Memorial Day Weekend AVOID DUI campaign Weekend report

The Memorial Day Weekend Avoid the 14 ' DUI Campaign has concluded with the deployment of two Sobriety Checkpoints, 13 special DUI Saturation Patrols and officers on routine patrol focusing special attention towards the impaired driver working to lower deaths/injuries on our streets and highways.

From 12:01 AM Friday, May 27, 2016 through Midnight Monday, May 30, 2016 officers representing 12 county law enforcement agencies have arrested 44 individuals for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.  In 2015, 46 DUI arrests occurred during the Memorial Day holiday weekend.  There were no DUI deaths this past weekend, but there was an injury collision in the city of Oxnard where a drunk driver collided with another vehicle causing injuries to four people.

Law enforcement officials will be conducting more Avoid Anti-DUI efforts throughout the county and region during the Independence Day holiday weekend and the 18 day campaign in August ending Labor Day weekend.

Police, Sheriff and the CHP encourage all motorists to watch and report impaired drivers each and every trip around town or during summer vacations: Report Drunk Drivers ' Call 9-1-1 any time you encounter that dangerous driver.  Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
