An 18-day, end-of-summer crackdown on drinking drivers by Napa County law enforcement agencies resulted in 69 arrests for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, officials reported.
This is 18 fewer arrests than last year’s campaign. In both years, there were no drunk driving-related deaths in the county, agencies said.
Nine law enforcement agencies participated in the Summer/Labor Day Holiday DUI Mobilization crackdown that included sobriety checkpoints, special saturation patrols and routine patrols.
Agencies will be conducting more anti-DUI efforts throughout the county again during Halloween, Thanksgiving Eve and during the December holidays.
A grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, paid for the program.
