Weekend 'Avoid The 13' Arrests hit 80

Milpitas Police, and other law enforcement agencies around Santa Clara County, are participating in a crackdown on drunken driving and reporting arrest figures each day for 18 days.

 

Multiple law enforcement agencies, coordinated by the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office, are participating in a Summer/Labor Day National Anti-DUI crackdown and are in Day Five since the initiative began Friday.

Arrests occur during routine traffic enforcement and special "Avoid the 13" DUI deployments overnight in Santa Clara County, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Arrests for Los Altos Hills, Cupertino, and Saratoga appear in the Sheriff's Office arrest figures, but are not broken down. Similarly, no further information was available on the CHP arrest locations, which were made mostly in Santa Clara County south of Mountain View but span wide swaths of highways from Mountain View to Hollister.

Funding for the program, which pays for extra police patrols, was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

All arrest numbers are provisional. Those agencies that have not yet reported . are marked NR for "Not Reported."
